In my cases ejecting external hd will raise "Unknown error" and hd
remaining mounted.

Eject is not same as Unmount, you have right. Eject should unmount all
mounted partitions of media and when all this partitions are
successfully unmounted, then it should try eject device. But this (all
actions which should be to do on eject) is probably problem of
exo-mount (exo-unmount, exo-eject).

Thunar have problem that it offer only Eject instead of Unmount on
media which does not support eject (they can be only unmounted).
