I'm not sure this is a bug: raw-text means the buffer is a unibyte
buffer, so there can be no multibyte characters there.  In other
words, there can be only unibyte characters in such a buffer.  It's a

What did you expect to happen instead?  Did you want Emacs to switch
the buffer to a multibyte one, once you attempt to insert a multibyte

For that matter, what is the real-world problem behind the sequence of
events that you reported?  That is, why would one need to insert a
unibyte character into a buffer and then add multibyte characters to
that same buffer?
