Of the hoods, it may do.
But not on the bars.
This is what i dislike not finding bars, designed to be as most want them.
I read about how bars are often mounted and it was flat top, not angled.
Personally i ordered 3T Superergo. But the measurement was totally off (reach longer to hoods).
As is Ritchey WCS Superlogic (carbon). From 78 to (105 - 12 = 93)
Only bar i have that is right on, is the older Easton EC90 Aero (red painted originally).
Unique angle where you actually mount the hoods.

BTW, i think Fairwheel bikes review of handlebars covers a part of this. Even though on MCFK it is a bit strange (IMO)
Many aero bars are actually designed as flat top bars.

Not sure how narrow you're after: ... ross-bikes
These look very similar: ... k-rac.html

I just installed them (38cm) and they are brilliant for me. Can finally use the drops comfortably. Fit well with Shimano GRX-600 series levers.
