The offset is meant to be used when you are converting multiple tables to raw device without filesystem.
You definitely want all tables to start at offset 0 when you have them in files.

Offset :1 would mean 4096 from the beginning, which makes no sense. If you were to put it to the device, you will have to see how many blocks were written and then set the offset to that (maybe +1). These offsets are expected to be around 10000000.
