Yeah they do function pretty similarly.

I guess what's your expected flow for how the disk gets selected though? Should
the kernel be "guessing" which disk to use?

Or should userspace be setting offset via /sys/power/resume_offset followed by
disk in /sys/power/resume (which will show an error in syslog about no partition
found)

If the latter, then I'd like to also modify the behavior to downgrade that missing
hibernate partition to debug instead too.
