How does this sound?

~~~
4. Encoding

File systems use various encoding schemes to store file and directory
names. Many modern file systems encode file and directory names as
arbitrary sequences of octets, in which case the representation as an
encoded string often depends on the user’s localization settings, or
defaults to UTF-8 [STD63].

Without other encoding information, percent-encoded octets in a file URI
([RFC3986], Section 2.1) MAY be interpreted according to the preferred or
configured encoding of the system on which the URI is being interpreted.
~~~

I don't know what advice to offer, if any.

Cheers
