Hello Bogdan,

while I have not really a helpful suggestion for you I noticed you disabled "nextprotoneg" for openssl.
May I kindly ask why you do so?

that one I did not know, so thanks for the hint.

try to disable as many option as possible. I would start leaving ssl_dhparam, stapling, ciphers and curve options on defaults.

Also using "openssl s_client" is a good method for measurement.

are you sure, nginx is really not build against distribution's openssl _not_ supporting TLS1.3?

Good luck!
