Rather dishonest debating technique once you were proven wrong you moved
the bar to say you were actually right.  You said "does not work under
UEFI" without qualification when you were proven wrong you changed it, a
very uncommon and likely rarely used feature that is not part of the zfs
standard.  Proof that they were never part of sun/oracle's original zfs
standard from the man page on bectl:

     bectl is based on beadm(1) and was implemented as a project for the
     Summer of Code, along with libbe(3).

In the future please use ,more honest debating techniques
