Same effect, the coding system is changed to "no conversion (binary)".

Before inserting, there is no buffer-specific coding system. After
inserting, it is "undecided-unix".

The line in .emacs that causes the change from "undecided-unix"
to "no conversion (binary)" is

  (require 'crypt)

However, the file .signature is neither compressed nor encrypted in any
way, so crypt mode should not become active.

Yes.

Yes.

On my system it is the same.
