Indeed, it's reporting the current state of the machine after it's finished the API call rather than the target state. If the hypervisor triggers a soft shutdown, then the VM will still be "on" rather than "off", even though it's beginning shutdown. The message reported will have no effect on the power off itself.

Yes but it's confusing the users, they then hit the power off button once more and get an error message.
I would rather see a message telling that the host is shutting down.
