Kubectl and paging

When i execute “kubectl get pods -v6” i can see in the request log that the parameter “limit=500” is automatically added to the “api/v1/namespaces/default/pods”
But when i execute “kubectl describe node NODE_NAME” i see, that no limit parameter is added and that the default limit (50) is used. This default limitation of 50 produces incorrect results for the resource requests and limits when there are more than 50 running pods on a node.

Is this behavior intended or a bug?

I also found no parameter or option to change the limit for the api request.
