The only things I can suggest until tech support or someone else can chime in is removing the CMOS battery and doing a full CMOS clear and then try disable the function. Failing that I can't think of anything else other than a bios update that could help.

resetting the bios while battery is removed didn't help
the wake on lan is again always active despite bios setting

The UEFI/BIOS setting alone won't disable WOL.

Your board has the Intel® I218V network chip, and the ASRock wireless LAN, do you have the Intel network driver installed, and the wireless LAN driver? No idea which one you are using, or which version of Windows you have.

Regardless, you need to go into Device Manager, and find the Network adapters entry. Open the Properties for whichever network interface you are using, and click the Power Management tab. You'll find several WOL entries, uncheck them and click OK.

Also check the Advanced tab if you're using the wireless adapter, for any WOL options and set them to disabled.

I don't see how this is driver or OS dependent in any way,
I am talking about pc power on with magic packet even when the pc is turned off, not in a sleep/suspend mode of any way, like if you turn off the power cord of the pc, then plug the power cord back in without powering the pc at all, then send magic packet via LAN (I am not using wifi) and the pc is powered on

that is a bios fault, and just to clarify, with the 1.50 bios there was no such problem

other thing that is bothering me is asrock failing to provide support in any way

If you revert to bios version 1.50 does it correct the problem still? It may be worth checking, if the problem goes away then it is definitely a bios problem and tech support will have to roll out a fix for the BIOS. 

Tech support can take a while, especially if they have a backlog and need to test and see if they can recreate your problem. You can try sending a PM to "ASRock_TSD" as that is the tech support representative here on the forums.

If you refuse to check and configure these settings, nothing else can be done.
