How to retrieve/set SCTERC NVME devices?

I assume SCTERC is also relevant on NVME devices(?) and if so how do I check if the device support it and how do I set SCTERC read/write timeout values?

This cmd doesn't seem to work on NVME:

smartctl --log=scterc,70,70 /dev/nvme0n1

At least it's the case for ver. 7.0....has it been implemented afterwards?

SCT commands are ATA specific. Setting ERC/TLER is only implemented for ATA devices.

$ man smartctl
    scterc[,READTIME,WRITETIME]  -  [ATA only] prints values and descriptions of the
    SCT Error Recovery Control settings. ...

NVMe defines Set Features commands for Error Recovery (DUPLE/TLER), NVMe 1.4 adds Read Recovery Level (RLL). These are not yet supported by smartctl.
