Did you check yourself?

The only source code files which contain non-7-bit-ASCII characters are
1. src/lib-storage/list/mailbox-list-index-status.c
  * Opportunistic function to see ïf we can extract guid from mailbox path */

i.e. in a /* comment */, and it's 8-bit ASCII not even UTF-anything.

2. src/lib-mail/test-qp-encoder.c
which defines binary data.

I don't think any C compiler allows Unicode in the code itself (instructions, 
variables names, etc.)
