If I use some other browser to submit them (to phpBB), they're
transmitted correctly and show up as … and ☑, re-
spectively, if I edit that posting, so phpBB seems to receive
and convert unicode (UTF-8 encoded) characters correctly.

Why is lynx doing the conversion to "7-bit approximations",
even if the display AND site charsets are utf-8?

because the line-editing code needs a rewrite...
