It does not know you intend them to stand for something else.

But then I would expect that "=E4" (umlaut-a) and "=F6" (umlaut-o)
should give rise to a case conversion, too. Or am I once again
missing something?

No, your expectation is reasonable.  But Emacs is inconsistent in how
non-letters in REGEXP are treated.


BTW, this inconsistency was not present in Emacs 19.34.
