The created file is broken by exporting as Mapinfo TAB with the projection EPSG 4647. The same export to EPSG 25832 works properly.

Steps to reproduce:
  • Open the GeoPackage savetotab4647.gpkg in QGIS
  • Select Export > Save Features As:
  • Select MapInfo Tab as Format
  • EPSG: 4647 - ETRS89 / UTM zone 32N (zE-N) as CRS
  • File name and location - whatever
  • Save with OK
  • Inspect the produced Mapinfo TAB file with "Zoom to Layer": no geometry at all (windows) or just the vertical lines (Linux) in the wrong position.

Try the same steps with EPSG 25832 as output projection. And finally with EPSG 4647 but export it to the Mapinfo MIF. Both works as expected.
