I would have expected this as well, but:
 [bent at bnlaptop ~]$ sudo parted /dev/sdb print
Model: WD My Book 1140 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdb: 3001GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 4096B/4096B
Partition Table: msdos

Number  Start   End     Size    Type     File system  Flags
 1      1049kB  3001GB  3001GB  primary

[bent at bnlaptop ~]$
