That configuration change was for ftp.debian.org, not for www. A
similar change to apache-www.debian.org.erb would probably do the right

http://ftp.debian.org/debian/doc/bug-log-access.txt does look correct
to me (with a Unicode copyright symbol near the end) in Firefox 52.2.0.

$ curl --silent -o /dev/null --dump-header - \
  http://ftp.debian.org/debian/doc/bug-log-access.txt \
  | grep Content-Type
X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8

$ curl --silent -o /dev/null --dump-header - \
  https://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/upgrading-checklist.txt \
  | grep -i Content-Type
X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff
Content-Type: text/plain

For what it's worth, I agree that declaring the correct charset in HTTP
metadata is a better solution than prepending U+FEFF ZERO WIDTH NO-BREAK SPACE
(aka the "byte-order mark") in the file content.
