There s no way for the offcut to get pinched unless the workpiece somehow rotated.

The off cut was not pinched. After the cut was complete the off cut piece was unstable on the rounded surface. It fell back into the rotating blade. I know that most kick backs are caused by the piece being pinched into the rear of the blade. However, try tossing a small piece of wood into the front teeth on a rotating saw blade. It will go flying. That is just what the OP observed.
