Uhm...I don't think so, because on a virtual machine of mines it shows:
# size offset fstype [fsize bsize cpg/sgs]
a: 4192256 2048 4.2BSD 2048 16384 0 # (Cyl. 2*- 4161*)
c: 4192256 2048 unused 0 0 # (Cyl. 2*- 4161*)
d: 4194304 0 unused 0 0 # (Cyl. 0 - 4161*)
Moreover it does not seem to be documented that disklabel counts
partitions in such a way, but I could be wrong. Or I'm running
disklabel with different flags.
