Yes there is SMTPUTF8, which is a special protocol.
The /global MIME thing i personally have _never_ seen in practice.
I have downloaded the RFC on 2012-07-23.

I cannot comment on that.  I am pretty sure i have never seen
/global yet.  Ie an archive search here reveals only three mails
where i mention them in the text; the last is from a thread from from July this year, and let me shamelessly
quote Ken Hornstein who said on 2023-07-23

 The message/global MIME type (a RFC822 message but with UTF-8
 everywhere) has a suggested file extension of ".u8msg", which
 I have never personally seen "in the wild" anywhere.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
