You can draw a quasi perfect circle with a Bezier curve (cubic) with 4 main points.
The optimal distance between main and secondary control points is
0.5517847391957151 * radius
(you do not need as many decimal places...!)

(optimal value calculated with wxMaxima and checked with Inkscape)

As to the _real_ question (XY? ;-) ), I am needing to do custom circular noteheads, also with bits and bobs such as middle dots and so on and I was not able to find an arc operator in the markup path commands, so one needs to user curveto, which is a Bezier operator. Is that right?
