You have to handle this slightly differently - you don't need a geom
_offset_ you need a geom _set_ !

more specifically:

dGeomSetPostion(  <your position> )
dGeomSetRotation( <your rotation> )

Geom *Offsets* make no sense for geoms because they have no dynamic
position to offset against - they're always posirtioned from the
origin - so it would be wasteful to calculate / store two offsets, one
of which is always zero.
