This is a basic fundamental of Tiff files. If the data size times the count of values fit into the offset field then this field can be the actual data and not an offset to an array. If you had a single strip then it would be contain the strip byte count for the single strip. If multiple strips then it would have to be an offset to an array of strip byte count values. In Tiff you have to handle both cases.
