I logged this as a bug a while ago and I think they changed the
behavior so that you get the option to eject if storage.requires_eject
is in the HAL definition for the device. I have not tested it myself
yet though.

So what? If you eject/safely remove on other OSes then you cannot
remount without re-pluging anyway. Personally, I think having a user
friendly "It is safe to remove this device" is better.
