This smells like a different character set used to display the text.
IIRC, ISO-646 defines this characters to be replacable by national
characters.  A long long time ago, program listings printed on German
line printers showed up funny:

 arrayäiü = 0;

instead of

 array[i] = 0;

GnuPG does not change the data encrypted or signed except when using
textmode (-t) which does a lineend character mapping, similar to FTP
ascii mode.
