I can't confirm or deny, and currently don't have the time to check it
out. But it's a fact several tools using libparted has the problem.

At least SUSE's Yast has the same problem. 

The tools don't want to put the partition start anywhere and apparently
they expect to be unchanged unless told otherwise. But it seems libparted
also expects to be told that partition start shouldn't be changed
otherwise it aligns.
