Yes, add folding patterns to the text.plain scope.

In the bundle editor use ⌘N to create a new Settings item, set scope selector to text.plain and the content should set foldingStart/StopMarker. You can look e.g. in C → Settings → Foldings for how the C sets this up, although you can simplify these patterns if you only want to fold on braces.

Also Markdown bundle sets foldings for headings, which is using the new indent-based folding patterns explained in the release notes (the start/stop marker is explained in the manual, but has been deprecated to have in grammars, and should instead be done as scoped settings).
