ONTAP 8.1 7-mode Options "disk"

Anyone familiar with what these disk options do.

This is an FAS3140 8.1 7-mode - one controller has these two options present and the partner node does not.

disk.powercycle.enable       on     (value might be overwritten in takeover)

disk.skip.dqp                      on     (value might be overwritten in takeover)

disk.powercycle.enable -> Enables individual disk drive power cycling to support storage error recovery. It's an option introduced in ONTAP 7.2.1, with the first releases of shelves capable of power-cycle without the need of a full shutdown.

disk.skip.dqp -> I don't found any official information, but I think it's an option to skip the disk qualification package or something like this...

Would love to understand the ramifications of each option being set to yes | no.

Bizarre as to an 8.0 > 8.1 upg and the options are only present on one controller.
