Yes.

Not sure about the details, since I don't really understand when Emacs
needs to load the charset map.  Perhaps the map is needed only when we
need to encode a string, not for decoding?

Phenomenologically, this happened when charset-map-path was already
decoded (as opposed to being a unibyte string) when this part of
startup.el runs:

  ;; Convert preloaded file names in load-history to absolute.
  (let ((simple-file-name
         ;; Look for simple.el or simple.elc and use their directory
         ;; as the place where all Lisp files live.
         (locate-file "simple" load-path (get-load-suffixes)))
        lisp-dir)

locate-file eventually calls 'openp', which wants to encode
directories from load-path concatenated with simple.el etc.
