The message originally posted, that you reference, says this:

So, I think the behavior you're seeing is correct (unless I just don't
understand the problem you're describing).

If you read the original email you'll see he then uses xargs to group
the generated file into multiple files at a time.

The "500" in the original message, as I understand it, is NOT the number
of elements printed to the same line of the output file.  Rather, it's
the number of elements that can appear in a single instance of the
printf function, internally.
