The source for the assertion that a drive is SMR is literally right next to the drive. In this case it’s Seagate’s site: https://www.seagate.com/internal-hard-drives/cmr-smr-list/
That's the reason I raised the issue... a discrepancy between the Seagate summary view and what appeared to be quite a detailed breakdown of the specified drives on the quoted site. Having carefully considered @HoneyBadger's response about areal density though, I'm quite satisfied that the quoted site has the Admission Procedure data recorded incorrectly.
