Why do I need to perform the Loopback Test to figure out what to set the Record Offset to?

First of all, why do the Input and Output Latency figures added together not match the Audio Roundtrip?

Why do I need to perform the Loopback Test to figure out what to set the Record Offset to? Why shouldn't I just set this to match the Audio Roundtrip Monitoring Latency?

What about using different audio interfaces? Do I need to change the Record Offset every time I switch between using my two audio interfaces?

I did notice that when doing the loopback test a while ago that the latency was different when looping the signal from my audio interface into a preamp running into the audio interface via ADAT as opposed to going straight to the audio interface's Mic/Instrument inputs.
