Geoffrey, http://userguide.icu-project.org/conversion/converters says:

"Since ICU uses Unicode (UTF-16) internally, all converters convert
between UTF-16 (with the endianness according to the current platform)
and another encoding."

That said, I don't think it's a major concern because ICU works on byte
streams. It's not like these strings will persist internally somewhere
eating lots of memory.
