Center Console 12v power supply

Just bought the 2019 Outback and am wondering if that power take-off is only on when ignition is on)

Yes, but there are threads here on how to make it always hot. Just search them.

Switched power to socket outlets has been a long standing tradition with Subaru's.

My truck has three always-hot sockets on the dash which is a good thing - until you don't unplug your powered device. I've owned the truck for nine years and have always unplugged my GPS and dashcam when parking. About two months ago I forgot to unplug them and let the truck sit for two weeks. Went to use it and had a dead battery. Luckily I wasn't in a rush to get anywhere so threw it on the battery charger for a few hours, and all was good.
