Description

The Seagate Archive HDD are SMR drives according to manufacturer specs:
https://www.seagate.com/www-content/product-content/hdd-fam/seagate-archive-hdd/en-us/docs/archive-hdd-dS1834-3-1411us.pdf

Unfortunately, smartmontools SVN rev 5115 doesn't recognize them as zoned device, because the drive doesn't report this:

# ./smartctl -i /dev/sdb
smartctl 7.2 2020-11-09 r5115 [x86_64-linux-5.8.0-0.bpo.2-amd64] (CircleCI)
