HTTP does not define a substatus code; only the three digit 403 code
will be returned by CURLINFO_RESPONSE_CODE. A "substatus" code may be
displayed in the textual part of the response for the benefit of the
user, but this is not standardized and your code would need to parse the
body of the message in order to extract that.
