1) you are referring to \offset command ?

No.  That would be premature in this case.

2) is it applicable as a replacement for "\offset Y-offset" for *every*
grob that support Y-offset ?

Well, I have trouble following your trains of thought.
I won't try to understand that question.

And I'm puzzled why you focus directly on the property Y-offset.

As regards the \offset command:
The section 'Properties which may be offset' at
says the property must have a default setting in define-grobs.scm.

OttavaBracket has the property outside-staff-padding because it supports the outside-staff-interface.
but define-grobs.scm doesn't set it.

So you can't use \offset in this case until that is amended.

As to the default value used for outside-staff-padding when neither define-grobs.scm sets it or any other code overrides it, see

So this 0.46 is just for outside-staff-padding.
