I think the opposite will be the case...

Now the CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST does not return any continuation data as
it overrides the LIST handler. Hence, it returns only the first part of
the response up to the first \r\n. However, if we fix it, it will be
handled by the FETCH handler, which will return the whole response:

* ABC {123}\r\nTHE 123 BYTES and the closing ')'

So yes the 123 bytes will be part of the response.
