Have you tried doing an import of the volume after reboot?
zool import zssd
Not sure why it would forget it though I have a similar setup a ssd mirror that’s my boot drive and an hdd mirror that stores less used files files and don’t have any problems. Make sure your /boot/loader.conf has the zfs_load_enable option set and rc.conf has zfs_enable option set. I did my upgrade from source an installed it to a new boot dataset kernel and user land then rebooted after changing pools boot dataset option so I never ran with 13 kernel and 12.2 user land.
