This is because the characters are not switched in software, but in hardware. 
The char ROM is directly connected to the ASC/CC key. Real US machines don't 
have this connection, they have a different character ROM that has a slightly 
different character set for C128 mode than for C64 mode. The char ROM is 
therefore connected to the 64mode line instead of the ASC/CC key.
