Indeed it is.

And it is actually documented here:

and mentioned here:
In other words, this is a limitation of the Serf-based backend that has
been around since Subversion 1.4. I'm aware that it isn't documented as
well as it should be, but the bulk-mode workaround exists in part as a
workaround for that, effectively disabling the more efficient HTTPv2

In the meantime, it might be a good idea to relax the restrictions in
git-svn to account for the way the HTTPv2 protocol works.
