    The 5 seconds should work. That is plenty of time for any buffers to empty.

    Great, so I will then just power it down and not worry about it.

    I do the same with any drive in a usb or combo enclosure simply turning the power off while the host controller in the enclosure itself being the chip on a small miniature circuit board will still be seen as a device in the Safety Remove list. Windows tends to detect everything even if not having any effect on Windows or a hardware. Clicking on the remove option simply insures that no error logs are created.
