Have a look at Denmark's own official website - note the map does not draw Grønland and Færøerne as a "part" of Denmark, for the obvious reason that it's not a part of Denmark the country. Greenland and the Faroes are a part of the kingdom of Denmark, which a different, supra-national entity.

offensive maybe but definitely extremely annoying. Its like telling a Scot that he lives in England, instead of the UK.
