You can actually see the full code using
edit curl
it looks like everything is based on gradient, which appears to use a 2-point difference.
(In fact, all the code for gradient is there too. So, you could set up alternate FD schemes. I'd suggest copying the code into something like gradient_4point, curl_4point)
