Ouch, sorry.  The page LENGTH is x0B.  The page CODE is x06.  Byte 0 of the
mode page data is x86.  The page in its entirety is x 86:0B:00:02 00:00:02:54
29:80:00:01 00, I transcribed it into English wrongly by eye, very sorry.

I meant to be asking if a compliant Rbc device has to provide "the RBC Device
Parameter mode page (06h)" or not, and where that is said.  Also may a
compliant Rbc device provide more pages.

Thanks again in advance.

RBC doesn't have a table listing mode pages it supports.  Its section 5.8
describes its only supported page, the RBC Device Parameter mode page (06h).

SPC-3 Table B.6 agrees that this is the only defined page (except for
vendor-specific pages) for RBC device types.

If any RBC products are providing such a page, they're operating outside the
scope of RBC and SPC-3.
