Ok, I did not know that. Would by interesting to know why. Is ZMQ using
some kind of small buffer optimization, where it uses the first few bytes
of the buffer for reference counter or storing the values if small enough?

I did and it works. Added both, positive and negative tests.

Thanks for the hint.
