Oops, yes, I was talking about "ACPI shutdown".

Will do.

No, bhyve process does not do cleanup. It works this way:

 * We send SIGTERM to the bhyve process
   - If the guest does not support ACPI shutdown, nothing happens (VM
     remains running like nothing has happened).
   - If the guest does support ACPI shutdown, it takes some time for it
     to shut itself down, then the corresponding bhyve process exits,
     however, the vmm node stays.

     Then code in bhyve_monitor.c notices that the bhyve process gone
     way and calls virBhyveProcessStop() which runs bhyvectl --destroy
     to cleanup the vmm node and calls bhyveNetCleanup() to cleanup
