Thanks for your test and for the version check.

Exactly: they are not the same.

Yes, on Linux vi(1) is a symlink to vim. It's good that at least the vim on
Linux and the one in FreeBSD ports behave similarly.
Even without a comparison between them, my doubt is another one. I wonder if
it is normal and expected that FreeBSD's vi(1) (which actually is nvi/nex)
does not automatically switch its encoding according to the current file,
despite the `fileencoding, fe [auto detect]' in the manpage.
Again, `auto detect' lets me wonder about this.
I am using vi(1) Version 2.1.3 (2015-04-08) on FreeBSD 12-RELEASE amd64.
