| thank you for your reply. I agree that the backend response would be
| 200. But what I need to see is the actual response code Varnish sends
| to the frontend, which should be 206. In the example code I therefor
| explicitly read out VRT_r_resp_status , but still see code 200.

200 vs 206 is decided after vcl_deliver has run.  What is the use case
for knowing 200 vs 206 earlier?  (If it's important, we can take a look
at it, but phk indicated it probably wasn't trivial to make the decision
