That's not how I interpret documentation.

5. Verify that the cluster re-detected all resources correctly.

Which implies that after full restart cluster is not aware of previous
application state and relies on normal probing.

This is recurring request. And it is not really specific to two-node

Pacemaker does not really have concept of actions. It works with target
state; so this would mean either setting target-role of each individual
resource to Stopped which is impractical or setting global resource
defaults which is unreliable as they may be overridden.
