Any example of such devices? Let alone "many"? Where you would issue a
full-device blkdiscard, but then just read back old data.

I know only one model(PLEXTOR PX-512M6M) of dozens tested, which is peculiar
that it ignores trim specifically for the 1st sector of the entire disk. But
implying there are "many" which no-op it entirely, seems like imagining the
world already works like you would assume it to.
