Read zectl documentation : This automates zectl BE creation. You need to setup zectl first and as you say zectl needs a separate /boot outside of the pool for systemd-boot.

I'm assuming this doesn't work if /boot isn't on a ZFS pool right? Because I originally saw Zectl only works with Systemd, but Systemd can't read /boot off of a ZFS partition. So what is the proper setup for this?

I found I had a typo in my loader.conf file. It is indeed functioning as expected. My mistake! Thanks for pointing out where to look.

It should boot the default: create /efi/loader/loader.conf with

default org.zectl-default.conf
timeout 3

Great addition to zectl for Archlinux! For me, this hook works well in that it creates a new boot environment at kernel upgrade. Reboot presents options: boot default and pacmanhook-<timestamp>, with the newly created pacmanhook- entry as default. So, with no interaction, this will boot into the pre-upgrade boot environment (pacmanhook-). Should it be booting into the new boot environment with the new kernel by default?
