IMO, yes.  We're treating the file as a whole as static data; file
local variables generally affect display and editing, which we don't
want in that context.  Suppressing evaluation would be consistent with
their treatment during loading, as well.

We need to be careful about normal-mode, which ignores settings of
file local controls.
