POSITION returns a value according to the following rules.

IF … THEN the result is …
either argument is null null.
string_expression_1 has length zero one.
string_expression_1 is a substring within string_expression_2 the position in string_expression_2 where string_expression_1 starts.
none of the preceding is true zero.

If the arguments are character types, then regardless of the server character set, the value for POSITION represents the position of a logical character, not a byte position.
