See section 5 (Use of encoded-words in message headers):

   (2) An encoded-word may appear within a comment delimited by "(" and
       ")", i.e., wherever a "ctext" is allowed.  More precisely, the
       RFC 822 ABNF definition for "comment" is amended as follows:

       comment = "(" *(ctext / quoted-pair / comment / encoded-word) ")"

       A "Q"-encoded encoded-word which appears in a comment MUST NOT
       contain the characters "(", ")" or " encoded-word that appears in
       a "comment" MUST be separated from any adjacent encoded-word or
       "ctext" by linear-white-space.
