That said I'm bemused at QHY's web info stating the KAF8300 as a 8.6 megapixel chip.

The chip has 8.3 meg active pixels....hence Kodak's nomenclature KAF *8300*
It is pretty clear to me what they state on their website:
Total pixel : 3448*2574 (8.9mega pixel)
Effective pixel: 3358*2536 (8.6mega pixel)
Active pixels: 3326*2504(8.3mega pixel)
