I'm using the nvme cli to send the subsystem reset - "nvme subsystem-reset /dev/nvme0".

It does appear the link is disabled when the driver's health check runs. It may be possible it observes all 1's on a transient link state change in the health check. I'm not sure right now of a safe way to distinguish a permanently disabled device vs a transient condition with the information available.

How are you sending a subsystem reset? On the Intel device, I assumed you were using a D3600, but this looks like a P3600 based on the model and firmware revision. That controller doesn't support subsystem reset, so the ioctl method should have returned -ENOTTY.
