The model is that the content of each Transport Parameter is built by QUIC, whereas they are encoded by TLS.

FWIW, the transition to the current model was made in #1608. During the time (late 2018), we discussed the possibility of moving the TP ID and length fields to varints as well, see, and we decided to not, some stating that it's already late. #3020 was not the first time discussing the issue.
