The offset comes from MHD counting bytes, not from the client.

Happy hacking,

I figured that much. A follow-up question: is the offset provided by the
client as part of multi-part or is this a libmicrohttpd thing? I just
want to know if I need throw a security warning if it does happen.

        I'm just wondering if it's possible when a client is uploading a
        that the content arrives out of sequence. For example is it possible
        to get let's say a sequence of offset values: 0, 50, 10, 20, 30, 40?

        I'm under the impression that this will not happen but I just
        want to make sure.

    You don't need to worry about out-of-order data since HTTP is built
    upon TCP.
