I made a bunch of hexagons and filled them with a Gradient Fill. The Coord mode is "object". If I zoom in, I get offset gradients in the objects that intersect the map canvas edges. There the gradient fills are not centered on the centroid of the object. This happens both when Reference Point 1 is set to Centroid or something else.

Attached are some screenshots. Look at the left side and see how the gradients are misplaced.

This is caused by the automatic clipping of geometries to the canvas extent (+ a small buffer). You can prevent this by clicking the advanced button in the symbol properties window, and uncheck "clip features to canvas extent".
