And if you now try `emacs -Q ~/.emacs.el` anew, you again see the \NNN
and the "=" in the modeline?

Does the file have file-local variables as in

    -*- ... -*-

on the first line or

    Local Variables:

on the last few lines?

Yes, the `=` means that Emacs decided that this file should be treated
as binary data rather than utf-8 text, basically.

Could you also try to search for a 0-byte?  E.g. with

    C-s C-q 0 C-s C-s
