That should create 7 partitions of which 5 have a file system. However,
when I flash the emmc with it and boot the device:

did you mean --ptable gpt?

/dev/mmcblk1p4      1392640 4771841 3379202  1.6G  f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/mmcblk1p5      1392641 2723840 1331200  650M 83 Linux

In msdos layout you can only have a limited number of primary partitions,
anything exceeding that will go into extended partitions which you see
as "overlapping" here, in the above paste p5 and p6 are actually within the
extended p4 (hinted by W95 Ext'd)

Kind regards,
