I agree.

I think it rather uses the "minimum", i.e. the region common to all the
return values from the jit-lock-functions.  If one of these values is nil
(as is the case here), that boils down to exactly the 500-byte chunk.

The comments in jit-lock.el say that this happens, and half-propose a
mechanism for fixing it.  It doesn't look straightforward to fix.
