So, yeah, if what's in there isn't bogus (and it doesn't look like it), and the K3 chokes on this (or only honors the first entry: you start on the TOC instead of the 'proper' start), probably a K3 bug. (Calibre only puts a single entry in there: the start).
So since EXTH metadata manipulation (addition, deletion, modification) is fairly well documented ... I'd say a script to eliminate the extra StartOffset from the binary (without unpacking and rebuilding) should be (somewhat) trivial.

Thanks for taking a look!
