I was going over the documentation and came across the following:

find takes all arguments after ‘-execdir’ to be part of the command until
an argument consisting of ‘;’ is reached. It replaces the string ‘{}’
by the current file name being processed everywhere it occurs in the command.
Both of these constructions need to be escaped (with a ‘\’) or quoted to
protect them from expansion by the shell.


The thing is, the curly braces need not be quoted.
