As stated, some items are fused directly off the battery but require a switch to activate that item (levelers/awning etc.) and therefore, technically, they are not putting a drain on the coach battery whether disconnected or not. In some installs there are items that have been deemed necessary to be powered even when disconnect is actuated (LP/O2 etc.) but would require minimal millivolt drain on battery. Evidently it is a crap shoot as to what each RV does when it comes to battery disconnect functions. As also stated take your volt meter and check your battery in each state of configuration and then you'll know what is what.
