When I use "-b" in du (equivalent to '--apparent-size --block-size=1)

Previously in this thread you asked for "allocated space for a file on a device", which is why I was talking about that number.
No, I wanted space that "would" be allocated on a device if the device allocated size in bytes -- which is what 'du' does.

        I even said I wanted the output of ls's block-size output to be
enhanced to pay attention to what users specify via that parameter.
I wanted a simple multi-column output like 'ls' provides.
        I wanted it just to work -- not require a program or figuring it out
but just have it be user-friendly -- something the tools designed by gnu
definitely are not.
