Does a mandatory field have to be present in the encoded message?

No, it doesn’t. Mandatory property of the field does not mean that field has to be present in the encoded message.

For example, copy operator: if the value is not present in the encoded message it uses previous value.

Mandatory field property means that the field has to be present just in the decoded (output) message, otherwise appropriate exception should be thrown.
