Is this something specifically Gentoo?  I would have expected to see the 
« /usr/sbin/upsdrvctl shutdown Eaton5SC1500 » in a systemd script executed 
during the system shutdown process.

Does such a systemd script exist?  If so, what does it do?  Is it executed?

Try the command « /lib64/nut/usbhid-ups -a Eaton5SC1500 -k »
