This is handled by the 512 emulator software.
Transition to Advanced Format 4K Sector Hard Drives | Seagate explains how even larger than 4kb blocks need to be aligned in order to avoid performance loss from the HDs firmware emulation when heads and tails of the blocks are not aligned to the hardware sectors.

Did you even read the URI about the Quick6? I seriously doubt it could do what it claims to do without that kind of smarts. I can hardly resist the urge to order one, but that extra $50 off does seem to be strong enough to keep me waiting.
I read the Amazon reviews. It got seven 5-star reviews and five 1-star reviews. That's not a large enough sample group to be definitive but it doesn't exactly make me feel very confident. I'd wait a while too.
