That means the display-time replacement doesn't happen, I think.  What
is your terminal-coding-system?

Then please talk to the Texinfo developers to provide a kind of output
that leaves the quotes and other punctuation intact, while keeping the
non-ASCII characters in names in their UTF-8 encoding (which will, of
course, show as inverted question marks on your console).  Emacs
cannot do anything to satisfy your request, as long as the Info files
are as they are, and I will object to us changing the contents of the
Info files in the buffer.
