There is the PARTITIONING storage engine. This is a layer in between the
upper layer and the storage engine that does foo to make engines that
aren't partitioning aware work. NDB is very much the special case as it
is partitioning aware.
So things are going to look different for partitioning aware and
non-partitioning aware engines. I can't actually remember the exact way
things work for partitioning aware engines... so can only offer the
guess that there is something going on around how partitioning aware
engines are dealt with.
