The bio does not, but the blk-mq code will split the bios when mapping
it to requests, take a look at blk_mq_submit_bio and __blk_queue_split.

But while the default limits are quite low, they can be increased
siginificantly, which tends to help with performance and is often
also done by scripts shipped by the distributions.
