In essence "encoded" refers to an encoding that is defined outside of the scope of the WSDL. With literal no separate "encoding" of the message parameters is necessary.

Encoding - especially Section 5 SOAP Encoding caused nothing but trouble which is why most contemporary SOAP stacks have dropped support for the "encoded" style.
