Nowhere in your previously posted session did you show yourself
calling gparted or any other partitioning tool.

Is this not creating a partition?
root@debian8-6:/home/richard# mkfs.ext4 root_owner=1000:1000 -L 2018Sept23tst1 /dev/sdb1
mke2fs 1.42.12 (29-Aug-2014)

My original post was to state that Gparted was not having its expected result.

I want to use CLI to take a USB connected drive from a known state
[i.e. dd if=/dev/zero ...] to an ext4 partitioned device which presents itself as owned by 'richard' of group 'richard'.

My next step is to read up on whatever CLI tool installs a partition table.
