We have OSDs on ZFS (0.7.9) / Lustre 2.12.6.

However, once the resilvering had completed, these permanent errors had 

The question is then, are these errors really permanent, or was zfs able 
to correct them?

Lustre continues to remain fine (though obviously froze while the pools 
were suspended).

that will present itself when we need to remount (e.g. after a reboot) the 
OST?  In particular the <metadata>:<0x0> file worries me a bit!
