No, there is no indication in the zipfile that it deviates from the spec. That doesn't stop people from creating such zipfiles, anyway; many zip tools ignore the spec and use instead CP_ACP (which, of course, will then get misinterpreted if extracted on a different system).

I think we must support this case somehow, but must be careful to avoid creating such files unless explicitly requested. One approach might be to have two encodings given: one to interpret the existing filenames, and one to be used for new filenames (with a recommendation to never use that parameter since zip now supports UTF-8 in a well-defined manner).
