Not all of them.  Extended HELLO (EHLO) or HELLO (HELO)
   Although EHLO keywords may be specified in upper, lower, or mixed
   case, they MUST always be recognized and processed in a case-
   insensitive manner.  This is simply an extension of practices
   specified in RFC 821 and section 2.4.1.

Here, 6.3 never talks about case. It is certainly 2.4:

   Verbs and argument values (e.g., "TO:" or "to:" in the RCPT command
   and extension name keywords) are not case sensitive,
