It is not about the table gender but about the plural gender of the numerals used to form the number. zeci, sute, mii, milioane are all feminine at plural. The composite form douăzeci (one word) or două sute, două mii, două milioane has the '2' in front which out of two possible genders (doi and două) must agree with the subsequent numeral gender - feminine.
douăzeci, not doizeci
două sute, not doi sute
Now about the numeral 12, same as with numeral 2, rule is different. The choice doi versus două must agree with the gender of object counted.
Doi băieți, două fete
Doisprezece bărbați, douăsprezece femei
