There is a long story.  Have a look at ped_device_seek() in
libparted/device.c.  Notice how there are 2 different versions of the
syscall, etc., and glibc hides this fact in newer versions (it uses macros
to select the right version, depending on whether you
#define _FILE_OFFSET_BITS.  This is done by adding -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
to CFLAGS... this is decided at ./configure time)

So, all seeks go through ped_device_seek().  I would try running device.c
through the pre-processor on Mandrake and PLD, and look for differences...
