Not necessarily 8 bit, but definitely unsigned.

No, they are the register offsets you quoted above, per bank. There
is no easy way to abstract these, and I suggested putting the
values into the source code rather than describing each bank
separately in the .dtsi file.

My feeling however is that the "vt8500_chip->regoff" is wrong, which
would mean only the first bank works. The code adds the same offsets
per bank once more that it sets in this bank table.
