Perfectly valid result from the test.

Delayed allocation extending the file to 256k means we'll have
speculative prealloc of data beyond 256k - it should be somewhere
around 448k IIRC.
Now, falloc doesn't guarantee unwritten extents are allocated - it
just guarantees space is allocated. unwritten extents are an
optimisation to avoid needing to zero the extents pre-allocated
within EOF. i.e. we can quite safely allocate data extents beyond
EOF rather than unwritten extents, and this is not a bug.
In this case, the delalloc extent is completely allocated as written
data, but nothing is written beyond EOF @ 256k. Hence it reports as
a data extent, not an unwritten extent, and this is a perfectly
valid thing to do.

You also cannot assume that two separate preallocations beyond EOF
are going to be contiguous (i.e. it could be two separate extents.
What you should just be checking is that there are extents allocated
covering EOF to 3MB, not the exactly size, shape and type of extents
