So dig into the spec and I think this is a bit relevant.

TPM TCG according the spec requires that all buffer access is done sequentially from the start to end of the payload,
Simply In case of skipping or going back the transaction is aborted.
The write transactions should be 1 or power of 2. So in general 6 byte read should not work. But I'm sure our hw really obey this restriction.
