If I understood you correctly, you completely integrated the former SFS2 into SFS >= 1.275 by using the DOSType CFS\02 now.
DOSType 'SFS\2', 0x53465302.

That way I should be able to format a harddrive of 500GB with OS3.x to its whole size into single partition.
Yes, but unless you have software which supports files larger than 4 GB, wich is very unlikely especially on AmigaOS 3.x, you shouldn't use 'SFS\2' partitions, especially not such a large one. There are no recovery tools for the new 'SFS\2' format yet, and even if you use a 2nd SATA2 HD for backups creating and restoring 500 GB backups takes a lot of time ...
