No, it doesn't.  It set's an HTTP charset only when none exists. 
Perhaps what you are seeing is the fact that browsers will use the
charset specified in the html <head> when no HTTP charset is present. 
But this has really nothing to do with apache.  I have seen certain
modules that will read the html, extract the charset, and put it in
the http headers.  But I don't think I know of any way to do exactly
what you are looking for.
