Thank you, I didn't understand that from the docs.
And in fact not even from your statement.

Seems like x/y always use the upper left corner of the paper,
while hoffset/voffset use the upper left corner of the layer.

But if I use \placelayer instead of backgrounds, x/y is relative to  
the text area.
Is that intended? (See my mail "layer question".)
