I think that the MP4 demuxer in mkvmerge does not handle audio which
does not start at timecode 0 correctly (meaning the initial delay gets
lost). Could you upload a test file for me please?

This is only a problem if the video track contains B frames. If it does
then the video might stutter. But it has nothing to do with your audio
delay problem.
