It looks like a bug in smartmontools/smartctl 5.38 ignores \"Standby\" option in smartd.conf and as a result smart polling keeps drives spinning, not spinning down.

See here:https://sourceforge.net/apps/phpbb/freenas/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=6063#p28994

Smartmontools 5.39.1 fixes this bug.

My FreeNAS version: 0.7.1 (5065) amd64-embedded (7S).
