It must, because Rmail reads the mbox file or stream with

That's a separate issue.  I just don't like seeing a buffer whose file
was read with no-conversion show ":" as the EOL mnemonic.  It's not a
catastrophe, I just don't see why we should change this aspect of
Rmail which is how it behaved for several Emacs releases.

But we don't behave like that with buffers that visit files, do we?
Why is this use-case different?
