Charset conversion during encryption

as far as I understand the man pages correctly, --textmode just converts
<LF> to <CR><LF> before encryption. True?

Looks like no conversion to UTF-8 is done.

Otherwise the input data is treated as a stram of binary data?

I have a text with 11 <LF>, 88 bytes in summary. Using --list-packets
show 88 bytes of data without --textmode and 99 bytes of data with this
