I would call this a badly setup server.

To recap your story:

A - you block the server from connecting back to you, so you can't use PORT

B - the server is bad and responds with a bad IP, so you can't use PASV

Conclusion: you simply cannot speak FTP with this server unless you change
something in the network environment. This is nothing curl can do anything
