pm-suspend-hybrid is just suspending my device, not hibernating, and you can not unplug the laptop using this method.
This suspend method is an hybrid. The wake up process is also way faster than full hibernation (seconds vs about a minute or more).

How should I notify then the upower mantainers, should I open another bug?
How can we involve them in this discussion?

Yes but it seems that I can not specify a different method for each:

plugged -> suspend
unplugged -> hibernate

There are more options in the advanced tab, but the inactivity option 
seems to be shared.
Maybe this is different in the lastest version of XFCE.

We can split the two topics, because the second has severity wishlist 
and should be in another bugreport.
