        Adds a [block key - block file pointer] entry to the dictionary.

        The Uniform Split technique adds block keys in the dictionary. See BlockReader and TermBytes for more info about block key and minimal distinguishing prefix (MDP).

        All block keys are added in strictly increasing order of the block file pointers, this allows long encoding optimizations such as with PositiveIntOutputs for FST.

        blockKey - The block key which is the minimal distinguishing prefix (MDP) of the first term of a block.
        blockFilePointer - Non-negative file pointer to the start of the block in the block file.
