The HEADERS frame is defined to carry a "Field Block Fragment",
defined in section 4.3.

Section 4.3 states:

"Details of HTTP/2 field section compression and decompression are
defined in [COMPRESSION]"

where [COMPRESSION] refers to RFC 7541, i.e. HPACK.

That is, the way HTTP/2 encodes headers in a HEADERS frame is via HPACK.
