Still having this problem unfortunately, and hopeful that someone else may have seen it by now.
My boot drive is a RAID-1, comprised of a pair of M.2 Samsung SSD 980 Pro 2TB drives using VMD. I'm running Windows 11 Pro.
The issue is that 100% of the time, when I power the machine off, the RAID believes it has not been shut down cleanly (and the unsafe shutdown count increases for each drive), and on the next boot it goes through verifying everything again. It never finds any errors in the process, which makes me suspect that the final sync/flush probably DID happen, but the disks weren't marked clean before shutting down. This is reproducible always.
This problem does NOT happen when rebooting, only when powering completely off.
The RST VMD Controller and RST VMD Managed Controller driver versions are both 18.104.22.1687, which is the current release from the driver page. This happened both with the 1003 BIOS and now with the 1403 BIOS.

Have you tried disabling fast startup in windows 11?

Do you see the unsafe shutdown count increasing after click shutdown option in windows and switch off the PSU?
Does it also occur on bios 1403 with bios all default settings?
Did you download RST VMD Controller and RST VMD Managed Controller driver versions 22.214.171.1247 from Intel official driver page?

Have you tried with other SSD drives to set RAID 1 but had the same issue?
Which M.2 slots do you install a pair of M.2 Samsung SSD 980 Pro 2TB drives in?
May I have the following information?
- the serial number of the motherboard via PM
- the brand and the model name of your CPU, RAM, graphics card, and PSU
(Please check the specific model name of the RAM such as ADATA AX5U6000C4016G-DCLARBK.)
- the firmware version of your M.2 Samsung SSD 980 Pro 2TB drives
- OS version and OS build such as win11 21H2 22000.469
- a video about how you power off the pc and see unsafe shutdown count increasing
