They are applied to the time stamps that are available to the
program. So, no, they obviously won't be applied to one step Sync.
But then again, neither will the driver values.

(You could imagine a HW tstamp unit that includes a correction factor,
for example by adding the egress time stamp value to the correction
field. But there are no APIs for that, and maybe no HW either.)

(BTW one step is overrated IMO)
