About "Login Items", I only have 3, but the question of enabling "Reopen windows when logging in again" I'm leaving active, which in this case opens Whatsapp Desktop, Chrome with 22 open tabs, iStatistica Pro open and Parallels with Windows 10 Pro VM at rest.
So in this case it has nothing to do with having the HDDs connected, as a colleague of mine said that when he disconnected his HDDs the NVMe boot was much faster.
I don't know how much having hard drives connected contributes to boot times. On my system, I have 3x3.5" drives and 2x2.5" SSDs.
