You only have a p1 (and for a GPT/EFI labeled disk, you can only
have p1 - no other FDISK partitions are allowed).

You have an s0 and s1.

This isn’t the output from when I did it but it is exactly the same steps that I followed. Thanks for the info about slices, I may give that a go later on. I’m not keen on that because I have clear evidence (as in zpools set up this way, right now, working, without issue) that GPT partitions of the style shown above work and I want to see why it doesn’t work in my set up rather than simply ignoring and moving on.

You would have to blow away the partitioning you have, and create an FDISK
partitioned disk (not EFI), and then create a p1 and p2 partition. (Don't
use the 'partition' subcommand, which confusingly creates solaris slices.)
Give the FDISK partitions a partition type which nothing will recognise,
such as 'other', so that nothing will try and interpret them as OS partitions.
Then you can use them as raw devices, and they should be portable between
OS's which can handle FDISK partitioned devices.
