I think, no, it doesn't respect coding, but that it doesn't matter.

It shouldn't be, if they are not being called.

Anyway, the cause of the error in this case is this line in files.el.

         (assoc-default nil magic-fallback-mode-alist
                (lambda (re _dummy)
                  (if (functionp re)
                      (funcall re)
                    (looking-at re)))))))

This is called when loading cangjie-table.b5 with
'image-type-auto-detected-p as the first parameter. Normally, the
condition returns "t", but in this case it will return f, then
the looking-at form fails with the error given. I don't understand which
this process does not happen during the build which generates

The bigger problem is that the bootstrap-emacs executable has different
functionality compiled in, even when it does not require it to perform
the task of bootstrapping. This might invalidate my approach, but I am
not sure yet.

The follow patch addresses, the problem at hand, though.

Subject: [PATCH] Fix file-mode errors in bootstrap.

* lisp/files.el (set-auto-mode): Do not call `looking-at' on a symbol.
* lisp/international/titdic-cnv.el (miscdic-convert): Use
  `insert-file-contents' rather than `find-file-noselect'.
