chunked-encoding disable range request

I find that range-request is disabled by Nginx proxy if backend
server responses with chunked encoding.
I verify my observation by:
1) manually edit the cache by replacing chunked-encoding header with
content-length header, then
range-request is enabled.
2) examine the header-filter of range filter, which indicates range
filter is disabled when content-length
is not valid.
a). Is my observation and verification approach correct?
b). If so, is it Nginx's limitation or is the behavior defined by RFC?
I tried to find the answer from RFCs, but in vain.
