 short answer: No.
 long answer:
 I have done two tests now, one shutting down with -h and pushing
 the power button, let 30 min idle, boot, check envstat -s acpibat0:charge,
 followed by making sure the batt is full (plug in power, remove power),
 shutdown with -p, let 30 min idle, boot. I've seen a small diff there and
 was a bit disheartened but then again my batt isn't the youngest (*).
 So the second test was tripled in time to get more granularity; I've
 now confirmed the same loss in the batt charge level with or without
  -p, i.e. "about none", also backed by the batt-status led which came
 up in green both times immediately (after 90 min shutdown -h as well
 as shutdown -p).
 So in conclusion I think it's safe to say the problem is fixed and
 the PR can be closed.
 (*) yes it sucks a bit but I wasn't looking at a phantom to begin
 with; it lost *much too much* charge level before.
