Spoke hole offset barely matters. It has the same effect as an equal change in flange to center distance, so the change in spoke length is only about 10% of the change in offset, or a few tenths of a millimeter.
That's less than the rounding and so isn't material.
If you want to factor the offset, measure the distance from the rim centerline, and add or subtract it from the flange/center distance when entering that into your calculator.
