The API calls PVE::Diskmanage::assert_disk_unused which relies on get_disks.
get_disks scans for ZFS, LVM, mounts, device mapper and partitions.

In this case the partition scanning is important. From the step "mklabel gpt"
in my script [0] onwards the partition folder /sys/block/sdb/sdb1 does not
exist anymore. However, this is what get_disks looks for [1].

Will be included in the next version (like all the other feedback). Thank you!
