RFC 2781 under "4.3 Interpreting text labelled as UTF-16" says is that if a document is labelled "UTF-16", the application should check the byte order mark to see if it is little endian or big endian   Only if there's no byte order mark, should the document be interpreted as big endian.

This is the Emacs default, which is well documented, and is also
according to what the UTF-16 spec (RFC 2781) says.

Then PowerShell behaves in violation of RFC 2781.
