There's no doubt that this is the server's choice or flaw.

If you add -v and --trace-time to the command line you can see clearly that
the server is taking a long time to respond in these cases.

I also tried with different curl versions and TLS backends and I couldn't
avoid the stall.

Curious! Time to fire up wireshark and see if that can teach us something
