I check the "Smart Battery Data Specification Revision 1.1".
And there are some words about FULLY_DISCHARGED.
"Discharge should be stopped soon."
"This status bit may be set prior to the
‘TERMINATE_DISCHARGE_ALARM’ as an early or first level warning of end of
battery charge."
It looks like the FULLY_DISCHARGED status is used to announce the
warning of battery charge and it is still discharging if there is no one
takes care of it.
