That was intentional as the booleans represent if a private prefix, singleton prefix, or "lvariant" has been found in general (not that the current position is the suffix of one of those prefixes).

Consider if there is a multiple extension singleton (eg: `a-BBB-CCC-DDD`)

Once singletonFound is set to `true`, it is assumed all further subtags should be lowercased unless it is a private use prefixed by "lvariant". Thus it would be folded to `a-bbb-ccc-ddd` as expected.

Did that address your point?
