The problem of LED blinking after Eject is selected in Nautilus, is very close to this Launchpad Bug Report from 2013:

That bug report only has five subscribers and has been closed as a duplicate of this Bug Report from 2011:

Scouring through the first bug report (the one closed as a duplicate) you see the author of udisks mentioning how patches need to be made. Two users who applied the patch reported no success however.

I think in the bug report they missed some of the important aspects of one user’s output. Here is the equivalent output from my system (that works):

Check your own gvfs-mount -li output to mine. Also consider subscribing to the bug reports above and/or posting there.
