You are hitting the issue because of watchdog timeout.

Behind that there are several pieces:
1. phosphor-watchdog at poweron.service is started when host is powered on;
2. During host boots, hostboot sends ipmi watchdog reset commands to BMC;
3. If the watchdog times out, the service will start
obmc-host-timeout at, and the "Wanted" services will be started,
including obmc-host-quiesce target.
