As you can see at image during ftp-data session establishment size of MSS was negotiated equal to 1360 bytes. But then transfer started and server sends blocks much greater than MSS value, and greater than MTU (1500) value as well. Is there some missunderstanding of Wireshark output or how can be this justified?

probably Large Segment Offload. Check the same session at the receiver, you then see the difference your NIC makes.
