Well, quail.el didn't (and doesn't) explicitly modify the coding tag,
so it was rewritten only when the buffer is saved.  But I think you
are right in pointing out the root cause: a stale quail.elc.  What it
caused is that leim-list.el was written out as iso-2022-7bit, but then
portions of leim-ext.el, which was already in UTF-8, were appended to
it, which made the file inconsistently encoded (since Sed just copies
raw bytes).
