Could you just \offset outside-staff-padding by 2?

Unfortunately, no. outside-staff-padding does not have a specific default value defined for any type of grob. This is the main limitation of \offset.

Internally, Axis_group_interface::default_outside_staff_padding_ is 0.46, but \offset has no knowledge of that value. Instead, it will see the grob property as unset and will not be able to perform the desired arithmetic.
