To me, this is a bug in qemu-agent which is assuming the guest is running

qemu-agent is not a forked package and Devuan uses Debian's packages directly
without recompilation. So, in principle, this is an issue that needs reporting
to Debian's BTS to be fixed there. However, if there is a configuration option
to change the shutdown command sent, we might be able to override that in
Devuan. I don't use the package myself, so it would be helpful if you could
investigate that?
