One would hope so. A series of characters terminated by a zero byte.
/// A contiguously stored null-terminated UTF-8 representation of

I think utf8String and utf8CString capture both meanings. I know they're
a little redundant but they get the meaning across, use CString term of
art, and are pithy compared to any alternatives (like "representation", etc)
