Section 3.1 says:

Encoding considerations:

      Per [RFC4627], JSON is allowed to be represented using UTF-8,
      UTF-16, or UTF-32.  When JSON is written in UTF-8, JSON is 8bit
      compatible ([RFC2045]).  When JSON is written in UTF-16 or UTF-32,
      JSON is binary ([RFC2045]).

It should say:

Encoding considerations:  binary as per section 11 of RFC 7159


RFC 7159, section 11 specifies that encoding for JSON is binary.
