This is where I'm a bit confused by the OP. If the frame "0" is taken from the frame number on the film, it's at the leader end ("Beginning") which would fit with the film not fed. Now I believe there were some cameras, likely of the motor wound variety that when loaded would wind the film all the way to the end, then work backwards down to the leader. My last Konica was an FP SLR circa 1963, so I am not a fount of knowledge on the later flavors of the brand.
