I don't think so but I'm not an expert.
BTW, when I installed the system, I had the sdd1 /boot mounted on
/mnt/boot (ZFS root on /mnt).
After doing "grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg" (in chroot) the
pool name was missing in grub.cfg, only the dataset name was there. I
added the pool name by hand.
Then "grub-install --force --skip-fs-probe /dev/sdd1" (also in chroot).
Don't remember anything special beyond that ... and a bit of elbow
grease :-) (several reboots to add the network interface
configuration, the console, right klibc, ...).
Cordially & good luck,
