I cannot reproduce this, so this might be something specific to OS X
(unlikely) or to your system.

The emacs.info file supplied with Emacs 25.1 should sets its encoding
to UTF-8 in the file-local variables section near its end.  Do you
have that in your emacs.info?

This should not be required for reading UTF-8 encoded Info manuals.
