No, really, I'm not.

       PTP4l(8)                    System Manager's Manual                   PTP4l(8)

           ptp4l - PTP Boundary/Ordinary/Transparent Clock


              Specifies  the  difference  in  nanoseconds  between  the actual
              transmission time at the reference plane and the reported trans‐
              mit  time  stamp. This value will be added to egress time stamps
              obtained from the hardware.  The default is 0.

              Specifies the difference in nanoseconds between the reported re‐
              ceive  time  stamp  and  the  actual reception time at reference
              plane. This value will be subtracted from  ingress  time  stamps
              obtained from the hardware.  The default is 0.

Please read the papers on this topic.  I posted links in another reply
in this thread.

Yes, you miss the point entirely.  PHY delays are relatively large and
cannot be even measured in some cases.  However, for well behaved
PHYs, the user space stack already covers the configuration.
