Yes, what's depicted are all decoded symbols in one OFDM frame.

Agreed. But this delay will only be fractional, as I can determine the
exact start by correlation. The oscillators are pretty stable, so I can
exactly time one symbol. The offset will thus be fractional and constant.

I verified this by correlating every OFDM symbol with itself. This 
shows that the cyclic prefix does not move.

I agree. But, as stated above, my time offset is fractional and
