[Rd] writeLines argument useBytes = TRUE still making conversions

I think this behavior is inconsistent with the documentation:
tmp <- 'é'
tmp <- iconv(tmp, to = 'UTF-8')
tmpfilepath <- tempfile()
writeLines(tmp, con = file(tmpfilepath, encoding = 'UTF-8'), useBytes = TRUE)
 c3 a9
Raw text as hex: c3 83 c2 a9
If I switch to useBytes = FALSE, then the variable is written correctly as c3 a9.
Any thoughts? This behavior is related to this issue: https://github.com/yihui/knitr/issues/1509
