I must be missing something - I don't see how power off is related at all.

That is correct, I don't think that should change.

That's exactly how I see it too.

All I'm saying is that at end-of-playlist (repeat off), the playlist index
is reset so playback will restart when PLAY is pressed (or Resume Playback
is selected, or the player is restarted with Start Screen = WPS).

IIUC, as a side-effect, this improves the use of RTC targets as alarm clocks
too. If you leave your DAP playing as you go to sleep, then shutdown on
idle timeout and restart on alarm it ought definitely restart the playlist
(rather than silently display "Nothing to resume"). Consistent!
