Sorry, that was inaccurate and misleading.  It's not rmail-reply, it's
mail-yank-original who does that, and it only does it if the encoding
of the reply buffer is the default buffer-file-coding-system (i.e. was
not yet set in any non-trivial way).  Here's the relevant part of

            ;; If they yank the original text, the encoding of the
            ;; original message is a better default than
            ;; the default buffer-file-coding-system.
            (and (coding-system-equal
                  (default-value 'buffer-file-coding-system)
                 (setq buffer-file-coding-system
                         (with-current-buffer original

The logic behind this is that if your reply cites the original, it had
better start with the encoding of that original.
