Even the clients from vendors who servers support CHUNKING don't seem
to know how to construct MIME sections with CTE of Binary.

Indeed. I don't believe I've ever seen a publicly available client capable of
it either.

Polymer can do that, even though it is hardly a mainstream client.
I am trying to remember (from the Lemonade interop event) if there was one more client.

All the binary messages I have are ones I've constructed myself
using a seriously hacked up client.
