A basic question

Maybe it is beyond the topic?
When I program with the iconv, I find display a file
with international char needs right mount option.
This question comes to me: why the kernel need special
code page to mount a disk with international char?
Any filename is a array of number, right? 
So, as I think the kernel does not need to know the
encoding and what a X program needs to do is read the
raw filename and translate it to UTF-8 and show it.
What the kernel do here?
