In standard definition for UTF-8 is used 1-4 bytes per character, if UTF-8 is used. It works like this calculator:
But how it's in SAS? Does SAS used 3bytes per character by default and it doesn't matter what character is stored?

UTF-8 in bytes is a function of language not of SAS.
Special characters will use one byte each.
Letters will use - latin (A a B b etc.) 1 byte each.
language specific characters (french, german, nordic, chinese, hebrew, arabic etc.) will use at least 2 bytes each.
