smartctl -n standby wakes WD USB drive

I have several USB drives from different vendors, including WD.

I have found that for a particular drive model, smartctl -n standby nonetheless wakes the drive.

This is a WD Elements Desktop 4TB drive.

Device Model: WDC WD40EMAZ-11LW3B0

Full smartctl -x attached. I am happy to run debugs, etc. over the next week or so, after which I may have to return the drive as unfit.

The drive in question was not actually spun down. Closing this. It'd be nice to see in the drivedb - will add there.
