These can be set using an field calculator, which looks like it should evaluate to an array with x and y offsets.  However this doesn't seem to be working.  I've tried using an array expression, array(10.0,0.0), and a string '[10.0,0.0]'.  But neither seem to work - the ellipse marker is not offset.  If I enter x an y values manually as 10.0 and 0.0 the ellipse is offset.

They must be a string value, e.g. "1,2".
