BLOBs have hard-coded BPB which makes all BLOBs have stream type.

   What is advantage of stream BLOBs?

You can seek stream blobs absolute (blb_seek_from_head), relative from current position (blb_seek_relative) and absolute from end (blb_seek_from_tail). IIRC for segmented blobs, only blb_seek_from_head works.

I have never had a real need for those features, except to try and implements certain JDBC requirements.
