Follow-up Comment #8, bug #46815 (project findutils):

The existing behaviour is user-surprising.

POSIX specifies nly (IIRC) the rouding behaviour when dealing with sizes
lacking a suffix (i.e. implicitly, blocks).  GNU find's current behaviour
generalizes this rounding behaviour, but many people find this surprising.

However, it's proabably impossible to change it now without breaking user
proggrams.  So the best answer is likely to be an extension or alternative
usage of some kind.

This is been discussed at some length in
