more on my situation.
looking directly into the /sys/class/net/em1/device/power/wakeup it is "enabled" setting ethtool -s wol d does set it to "disabled." So the system, when up, seems to be properly configured, but WOL does not work.
Looking at the device the link light is on on the card, so power is being applied, it just won't respond to the WOL. (And again WOL works for a system in "suspend" but not in "poweroff").

Curiouser and curiouser.
If I reboot and then when I get to grub, issue a halt from the grub command line, then WOL works. So there's something in the Fedora shutdown routines that is leaning heavily on the ethernet card.
Does anyone have a good approach for tracing what the heck is happening during the shutdown? I can't get any log information.
I've tried the recommendation from DBelton here
for a script in /lib/systemd/system-shutdown, but it doesn't seem to run for me (I don't get any information in /dmesg.shutdown.
