Whenever I start the engine, I tap ‘Log Engine Start’. When I start to taxi (from hangar to apron) SD automatically starts counting the off block time. When I stop on the apron and let the engine warm up, the off block time counter stops counting, restarting to count when I taxi to the holding point.
I. e., the off block time is measured as the time I’m moving (on the ground), and not for the time I hold position after I have moved.

My understanding of the off block time has always been as the time between when I start to taxi and the time I end taxying after I have landed. Am I wrong?

SkyDemon should log "off blocks" automatically when you first start moving after logging the engine start. It should not log "on blocks" until you stop for the final time after your flight.
