There is a battery on the board to maintain your CMOS. Here is a link to instructions on getting to your battery:



macOS doesn't see that
It's likely the vendor accidentally left in a Battery device in ACPI or something dumb. Would need to see the DSDT/ACPI dump to tell

Edit: This post is several months old as well - It's likely already been solved or there won't be a response

IMHO, the presence of a battery (from the OS point of view) can be affected by:
a) selected SMBIOS, but the OP mentioned iMac19,1 which is a desktop one
b) DSDT contents. I would start with searching DSDT for a device like BAT0 or some such. If you find one can - you can rename it with bootloader patching, or supply a custom compiled DSDT.aml without it - at least to check if it would help.
