mpslsi0 : Trying sleep, but thread marked as sleeping prohibited

I am doing some code changes in mps dirver. While working on those changes, I come to know about something which is new to me.
Some expert help is required to clarify my doubt.
1. When any irq is register with FreeBSD OS, it sets " TDP_NOSLEEPING" pflag. It means though irq in freebsd is treated as thread,
We cannot sleep in IRQ because of " "TDP_NOSLEEPING " set.
2. In mps driver we have below code snippet in ISR routine.
mps_dprint(sc, MPS_TRACE, "%s\n", __func__);
I wonder why there is no issue with above code ? Theoretical we cannot sleep in ISR. (as explained in #1)
Any thoughts ?
3. I recently added few place msleep() instead of DELAY in ISR context and I see
" Trying sleep, but thread marked as sleeping prohibited".
