I've exported a TIFF to geopackage raster, and noticed that while the exported data only cover
zoom level 7, the tile matrix definition ranges from 0 to 7.
From the reader point of view, it seems that in order to get the effectively populated tile
matrix levels one would have to run a select distinct on the zoom level in the tile table,
which seems rather inefficient.
I checked the spec and while it demands a tile matrix spec for populated levels, it does not
seem to require omitting it for non populated levels. Can you confirm?
I think I'm seeing in the code a check verifying that indeed at least one tile is present before
listing a particular zoom level:
// In read-only mode, only lists non empty zoom levels
else if( !bUpdate )
osSQL += CPLSPrintf(" AND EXISTS(SELECT 1 FROM %s WHERE zoom_level = tm.zoom_level LIMIT 1)",

Yes that's my understanding too that gpkg_tile_matrix can be instanciated at zoom levels for which there is actually no tile in the pyramid table. I guess I did this choice betcause I wasn't sure how to interpret the requirement for consecutive zoom levels differing by a factor of 2, and thus chose to pre-create all zoom levels from level 0 to level N. This is also slightly more convenient in update mode if you want to add tiles at low zoom levels: you just have to insert them into the pyramid table.

Yes that's the request to find which zoom levels are actually populated so as to find the highest zoom level (the base level used to compute the raster dimensions) and the populated overviews. I would expect this request to be not that inefficient since the pyramid table has an index on (zoom_level, tile_column, tile_row), thus finding if at least one tile exists at a zoom level should only involve looking at the index.
