In C, "\"foo\"" produces ASCII quotes.

Did you enable electric-quote-string?

Well, can you give an example where it does work in strings?  Maybe
I'm missing something, because it looked to me as if it never works in

Depends on what you mean with "work". A bare " should always close the string; after a \ it currently inserts an opening quote because it only looks back one character.
