Question about ecdsa-sha2-* public key authentication

I have just looked into an SSH_MSG_USERAUTH_REQUEST message sent by an
OpenSSH 8.2 corresponding to ecdsa-sha2-nistp256 public key authentication,
and it does look too small for the data that is supposed to be transferred.
Is this client perhaps using point compression?
