 Exactly!

It depends ... See macro `CPU_BACKUP_RAM_NOT_RETAINED`. Some CPUs do retain data during sleep mode e.g. the stm32´s have a dedicated regulator for that. But others `saml21`, according to the definition of `CPU_BACKUP_RAM_NOT_RETAINED = 1` do not.

Sorry the "external" was a bit misleading. It does not matter if we use peripheral or external EEPROM.
I know that at least some AVRs (`mega2560`) have internal EEPROM. And RIOT´s external EPROMS are `at24cxxx` and `at25xxx`.
