Since this isn't a bug but rather discussion I am closing this bug
ticket, CC'ing the discussion line, and directing follow-ups there.

I don't understand your question.  The 'sha256sum' program will read
data and compute the checksum.  Input data is always raw input data
regardless of how it is logically structured.

  $ printf "abc" | od -tx1 -c
  0000000  61  62  63
            a   b   c

  $ printf "abc" | sha256sum
