SeaBIOS has never set the size above 30, and looking at the EDD3 spec
I think the current behavior is correct:

  The caller sets this value to the maximum buffer size. If the length
  of this buffer is less than 30 bytes, this function does not return
  the pointer to DPT extension. If the buffer size is 30 or greater on
  entry, it shall be set to 30 on exit. If the buffer size is between
  26 and 29, it shall be set to 26 on exit. If the buffer size is less
  than 26 on entry an error is returned.
