OK, after some testing I came up with a test (I didn't find it earlier
because `customize-variable' is essential, simply setting it doesn't

$ emacs -Q
M-x customize-variable RET utf-fragment-on-decoding RET
[set to t, set for current session]
C-x C-f test.text RET

Now, the characters from the file are decoded into `cyrillic-iso8859-5',
while new, typed characters are in `mule-unicode-0100-24ff'.

No.  Please try yourself, that way it must be easier to understand ;)
