The devices below don't appear in your lsblk output so it's hard to say
whether the partitions kpartx prints for the devices are valid or not:

That said the tables above look perfectly plausible. It would help to
verify that if you could post the partition tables the devices contain
(preferably in sector units).

What's that '2' doing there? The only thing kpartx expects following the
'-a' is the whole disk device:

    SYNOPSIS
       kpartx [-a | -d | -l] [-v] wholedisk

What happens when you run 'kpartx -a /dev/mapper/sfx4k? (or samplelib).
