    Yes, it will “offload unused apps” when storage space gets low - at least that’s my understanding...

    You can even manually do that:

    I have TomTom installed on my iPhone. It has the map of Europe downloaded and takes over 7.13GB in settings. When I chose the offload feature for it, it simply deleted the app that took 189.5MB of storage. The map itself stayed on my device.

    All I want to clarify is that the offload unused apps feature is not that helpful if your apps have more content in it than the app size itself.

    That sounds like a bug. Did you report it to Apple?

    I don’t think it’s a bug. It specifically says it keeps documents and data of the offloaded app.

    Yep, I see that. Sure doesn't help much if there's a lot of doc and data.
