Unhappy regarding file system block size

Hi all,
I have one doubt regarding the block size of the UDF file system when formatted on a Hard disk.

Since UDF Specification tells that Physical Sector size and File system block size should be same which incase of Hard disk is not Same. But when I formatted the Hard disk with UDF in Linux, It is able to mount and allowing to read and write. Hard disk we are using has a sector size of 512 bytes and UDF block size is 2048. This block size variation is taken care by the File system itself or the Buffer cache or the Hard disk driver. Thanks in advance.
