OK I pulled my Pi Zero out, which also uses Btrfs, and 4.19.75 kernel.
The Btrfs sector size is 4096. Same as on x86_64.

So now I'm back to something stepping on the end of the drives, that
munged the backup GPT, and possibly munged Btrfs too.

Has either device been mounted degraded since the successful scrub?
