Why not? They do.

I'm not sure I follow. Placing a master preference for an anonymous
instance effectively applies to the whole clone on that node.

If you set a negative/zero master preference on a node, drbd won't run

If you set a positive one, the highest scoring node will be preferred.

Maybe I'm missing the real question?
