As Élie mentioned, the documentation says otherwise. I'll try Ulrike's fix.

It's a common misconception: despite the name, luainputenc is also related to
the output (ie font) encoding. If you want to use 8-bit fonts (which may be the
case for legacy documents), you *do* need it, of fontenc won't work properly.

So, you (currently) need luainputenc if :
- your input encoding isn't UTF-8
OR (inclusive)
-your font encoding isn't allways Unicode.
