That's a bug in `filefrag -v` that I noticed independently yesterday.
Without -v it will correctly report 0 extents.
I've already suggested a patch to fix upstream.

About that sync.
I've noticed on ext4 loop back at least (and I suspect BTRFS is the same)
that specifying FIEMAP_FLAG_SYNC (which cp does) is ineffective.
I worked around this for cp tests by explicitly syncing with:
dd if=/dev/null of=foo conv=notrunc,fdatasync

OK that's fine for normal files.
cp (from coreutils >= 8.10) may still do the wrong thing
as I've already reported:
I'd appreciate some `filefrag -v` output from a large compressed file.
