No. ZPODD suspends itself, which put ZPODD to a SCSI low power state (NOT power off/D3_COLD).
And then it is the "Runtime PM core" that suspends ATA port after ZPODD being suspended.
And the .runtime_suspend callback for ATA port actually turns off the ZPODD power.

During resume, ATA port is resumed first because of the ACPI wakeup event.
But in fact, this wakeup event should be read as "ZPODD remote wakeup signal", thus runtime resume request is sent to ZPODD, done by Patch 3/6.

Sure, but the power is still on at this time.

Thanks,
