It's not generally expected you'll want to disable multibyte explicitly,
but it tests the case you get if you have a system which doesn't have
the required multibyte support.  It's not clear if zsh gets compiled on
such systems now --- they won't be very common but there might be some
deliberately reduced systems for low-level use.  These only need testing
in a similarly limited fashion.
