I've just updated a second drive to a fresh install of Catalina and can report that with XMP Enabled and RAM 64gb (4x16gb) at the full 3200 the USB eject issue on waking from sleep has gone.
Sounds good, but what do you did changed?`Do you use any other kext? Settings for the RAM in Bios will be intressting, because i have the same ram, but i get the eject error.

Okay set your RAM to 2666 - Apple set their RAM at 2666 and trust me you WILL NOT see any difference in performance. You will save yourselves a lot of headaches.

Also - if this keeps happening, trouble with sleep, USB Ejects etc.
You may also want to look into:

Splitting all USB2 peripherals to only work on 1 or 2 USB2 external hubs.
& the same for USB3.

So mine is:
USB2 ports HS09 & HS010 - feeds 2 x LINDY USB2 Hubs.
USB3 port SS07 feeds 1 USB3 Elektron Overhub.
