(1) There are many different programs all called eject(1).
I find at least four of them on this machine.
(2) I missed the start of the discussion; if this is a SCSI cdrom then
many eject programs will use raw SCSI commands and the kernel does not
try to parse raw SCSI commands so does not know that it is ejecting
a mounted cdrom.
