Ok, so my assumption fits in this case, in the context of node1.

And only now I can see the source of this overall confusion, glad
you've tracked that down.

That was my slightly obtuse attempt to unfold the seemingly incomplete
or downright confusing picture (subject to interpreting "however" in
the original report).  Sorry for that, luckily, you seem to have all
the answers by now.

As for systemd, you can also use "systemctl is-active <unit>", and
within pcs context, "pcs status" will also serve a "Daemon Status"
at the bottom of its output, where also corosync should be detailed
