This works fine for me.

Not sure what you're doing and seeing here.

Here's another version of your stylesheet as a check:

$ expand -t2 /tmp/t.xsl
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
  <xsl:output indent="yes"/>
  <xsl:variable name="v" select="'before{during}after'"/>
  <xsl:template match="/">
      <e a="{$v}"/>
      <xsl:comment> { </xsl:comment>
      <e a="{substring-before($v, '{')}"/>
      <xsl:comment> } </xsl:comment>
      <e a="{substring-before($v, '}')}"/>
      <xsl:comment> {{ and }} </xsl:comment>
      <e a="{{ double curly works for me }}"/>

$ xsltproc /tmp/t.xsl /tmp/t.xsl
<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <e a="before{during}after"/>
  <!-- { -->
  <e a="before"/>
  <!-- } -->
  <e a="before{during"/>
  <!-- {{ and }} -->
  <e a="{ double curly works for me }"/>

$ xsltproc --version
Using libxml 20707, libxslt 10126 and libexslt 815
xsltproc was compiled against libxml 20707, libxslt 10126 and libexslt 815
libxslt 10126 was compiled against libxml 20707
libexslt 815 was compiled against libxml 20707
