As long as there are no overlapping areas, that doesn't matter.

e.g. part0 last sector and part8 first sector has a gap of 8 sectors ...
part0 1st sector 0 to last sector 12502430343 > total disk sectors available

part0 sector40 to last sector 12502430343 < total disk sectors available (missing 14 sectors) etc..
If your SSD is a $500k house, these gaps sum up to less than two tenth of a cent...

Hahaha jlliagre, nice analogy..
Thank for your reply. I am just wondering why are these sectors distributed in such way and how they sums up.

Last question i hope you don't mind, since these are 4k disks, is there any reason why ZFS are aligning them with start sector 256 ? instead of the default 40 ?

Code:
40 = 40 * 512 = 20480bytes 
20480bytes/4096=5 x 4k sector  - which is in multiples of 4k and should be fine.

Noob
