This is actually a bug in NetBSD; I'm surprised no-one else noticed it
before. I have filed a report at the netbsd.org bug tracker, but if anyone
is interested...

The bug is in src/sys/dev/scsipi.cd.c, in the read_cd_capacity() function.
The bug was first introduced in version 1.227:
Compare with 1.226:

The line
*size = _4btol(data.addr);
should be changed to read
*size = _4btol(data.addr) + 1;
