There's something that hasn't been explained here.

Sessions negotiate their connections based on the list of curves that
is available.  It's vital during that negotiation that you don't
advertise curves that you can't support.  The list of curves is
statically configured in the provider.  Therefore, for negotiation to
succeed, the list of supported curves must be the minimum set that we
know we can support.
