Interesting.  My the programming in CHIRP for my UV-5R stores/saves the 
offsets, but CHIRP is not "doing the math" or storing/saving the offsets 
with the GT-5R.

 From what I'm seeing, it's on the software side, not the radio side.  
After downloading the GT-5R's memory after a complete reset, I enter 
programming info for the radio, save it, close and reopen the file, and 
the offset field is set to "off".
