That's because this was the error code that was used there before for
empty chunk size lines, but I agree that this error code might be wrong.

IMHO unfortunately not, but it does not matter in the proxy case anyway,
because the error messages sent via bail_out_on_error are sent to the backend
server in this case and not the client :-). This is because we have switched
the meaning of INPUT and OUTPUT filters for our proxy connection to the backend.
The client will receive internal server error just as with your test with the
insane sized chunk extension. This is no regression it has worked forever like this.
So in the light of this it might make sense to change this simply from
