I've never seen a ftp-client yet, which is able to speak
http-protocol to interact with a proxy. (When you use a proxy with you send a http-request
http://your.proxy/ to your proxy. The ftp-request
is then done by your proxy.)

When you find a function named proxy in your client then it is
usually a function which has nothing to do with proxy-caching.

excerpt from the ftp-manpage:
     proxy ftp-command
          Execute an FTP command on a secondary control connec-
          tion. This command allows simultaneous connection to
          two remote FTP servers for transferring files between
          the two servers. The first proxy command should be an
          open, to establish the secondary control connection.
