At least, that's how I understand things.
When you use KindleUnpack to shift from KF8 to ePub, you have to use epubcheck to check for errors as there will be some. The errors should be fixed. Also, if it's not a KF8 from one of the big 5 plublishers, the Kf8 can be not all that nice to format shift.

For example, one KF8 I've seen was using a lot of media queries and the book was one big file instead of split into chapters. So you have to check out the ePub once you've shifted to make sue it's OK.
