What does the offset option in svylogit and svyologit calculate?  I can
find no information about how a variable entered as "offset" is handled
by the resulting regression model.

An offset refers to a covariate which is included in the model but with a coefficient constrained to be equal to one. For example, this is useful when modeling a dependent variate whose mean is assumed to be directly proportional to a covariate (e.g., total exposure to the risk of some event).
