In practice, yes, in theory, no. *Darwin* is just a BSD *nix kernel
(more precisely, FreeBSD kernel functions wrapped around a Mach
microkernel), and at that level, they're just byte sequences. Mac OS
X defaults to a file system which enforces UTF-8, that's all. But
consider NFS mounts (whatever the remote system wants) and removable
media (most often VFAT with some bogus Microsoft encoding).

Sort of true, for values of "when needed" == "when the actual
filesystem is HFS+".
