IIRC, it should disconnect all bluetooth connections. To my
understanding the bluetooth chip is disabled altogether.

Actually there's a bug in "disconnect when cover on" feature. In
certain cases (depends on the boot order of few daemons) the
disconnect feature is enabled even though user has disabled it from
UI. That might be the bug you are seeing.

I'm working on a fix for that.
