There are different ways to do the leveling in the marlin firmware. If you just do the 3 point method, then no, it won’t fix it, but I’m doing the bilinear grid, which samples 9 points, and fits 4 planes to the surface, so it should actually account for some bowing. If I had an s curve in the bed, I could have it sample at 25 points, or something, and get a ton of little interconnected planes and compensate. If it was that bad, I’d probably just get a new bed though :).

  /**
   * Select one form of Auto Bed Leveling below.
   *
   *  If you're also using the Probe for Z Homing, it's
   *  highly recommended to enable Z_SAFE_HOMING also!
   *
   * - 3POINT
   *   Probe 3 arbitrary points on the bed (that aren't collinear)
   *   You specify the XY coordinates of all 3 points.
   *   The result is a single tilted plane. Best for a flat bed.
   *
   * - LINEAR
   *   Probe several points in a grid.
   *   You specify the rectangle and the density of sample points.
   *   The result is a single tilted plane. Best for a flat bed.
   *
   * - BILINEAR
   *   Probe several points in a grid.
   *   You specify the rectangle and the density of sample points.
   *   The result is a mesh, best for large or uneven beds.
