No, since file contents aren't subject to it, only filenames and messages.

Files have their own codepage unrelated to the server codepage.  default 
is none, which bypasses all the translation, -ku changes it to UCS-2 or 
you can specify it explicitly eg -k{SHIFT_JIS}.  The client then 
converts that into UTF8 for transmission.
