Currently the NIST curves (P256, P384, P512) use the native code to verify signatures. We need to have an implementation in the java part of the SunEC provider to lessen our dependency on the old native implementation.
Should this ever be backported to an older update release, JDK-8277233 (https://github.com/openjdk/jdk17u/commit/2d4103a3d929e05edca98e7703e0869077966be7) needs to be backported, too.
