Looks like it should be allowed on the same file as long as the source
and target file ranges do not overlap

See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/openspecs/windows_protocols/ms-fscc/1ee611b7-43f0-468c-8a9d-28f04cdc3376
section 2.3.7.2 and 2.3.8
Server returns STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED if "The source and target
destination ranges overlap on the same file."

and line 112 and following of smb2_ioctl_filesys.c in Samba code

https://git.samba.org/?p=samba.git;a=blob;f=source3/smbd/smb2_ioctl_filesys.c;h=8a9c8c64ec9ddbca4623251555f4792d76aa6e44;hb=refs/heads/master#l112
