bug#19392: Emacs searches for dabbrevs in archive buffers

Zipping binary data was not a good idea, but at least string "PK" doesn't come from the archived "random.bin". You can create another test `.zip' file by archiving a text file, to be sure.

1. Switch to buffer "*scratch*"
2. Type "P" (without quotes)
3. Press M-/
4. Here it finds expansion "PK" from buffer "random.zip".  Cycling
   with M-/ finds a few more, which are more binary-like.

I tried visiting a zip file here now (in Emacs 27.1), but I was unable
to make dabbrev-expand expand to any of the strings in the raw zip file.

Do you have a recipe, starting from "emacs -Q", to reproduce the bug?
(Including a test zip file, I guess.)
