WOL makes shutdown behave like a reboot

Dear community,

I am using a OPNsense (router distro - PFsense fork) Qotom box which I wake via WOL. This works perfectly fine. However, executing a shutdown -p now will make the box reboot instead of shutting it down. After the reboot, executing the same command will shut down the box.

Can anyone point me to solution of tell me how to further investigate?
