What has "rotational" got to do with "supports discard"?
There may be some correlation, but it isn't causal.

This should be set as the 'or' of the same value from component devices. And
does not enable or disable the use of discard.

I don't think that "does this device support discard" appears in sysfs.

I believe trim does work on md/raid1 if the underlying devices all support it.
