I would be surprised if they did not, but don't know the format enough to

In MNE we call these gaps "aquisition skips". Typically we get these with
Neuromag files. They get stored in the `raw.annotations` object, and you
see them when doing `raw.plot` and similar operations. But it's most likely
not implemented properly for EDF yet.

If you can do a short on-off type recording -- maybe 2 sec on, 2 off, 3 on,
3 off, 3 on or so? -- even without a subject capped, we could look at how
to read this file properly in MNE (please open an issue and provide a link
to such a file).
