If you mean st_blksize, well:

The value st_blocks gives the size of the file in 512-byte
blocks. The value st_blksize gives the "preferred" block­
size for efficient file system I/O. (Writing to a file in
smaller chunks may cause an inefficient read-modify-
rewrite.)

Telling programs 'please use 1-byte r/w buffers' is probably
a bad idea.
