No.  If the source of encoding is a string, it is inserted
in a working buffer to allow pre-write-conversion function
to modify it.

insert-file-contents uses the working buffer to hold the
output of decoding.  So, when decode_coding_c_string is
called, we have already called code_conversion_save to make
the working buffer.
