Jon Siwek commented on BIT-1179:

Though the client side of those requests still appears in http.log,
are they parsed before the gap comes on the server side?

A gap from the server's side just disables further parsing of responses, but any more requests will still be parsed. HTTP.cc:1158 is where this happens.

And though it doesn't apply to this case, the code for dealing with a gap in a request seems fishy as the comment implies an intention that doesn't match what the code actually does and the code has an extra {{content_line->SetSkipDeliveries(1)}} statement which was probably meant to be invoked on the other side's {{ContentLine_Analyzer}}.
