Im on a smartphone with alpine linux & KDE desktop, running ssh in, and for some reason no one thought to put a shutdown aplet in a logical place, and even the shutdown utility is not present.

 $ whereis shutdown
shutdown:

nothing, ooh but I do have halt, but no man pages. well anyway, is the shutdown command provided in a package,available in source code that i can compile, or just an alias to the halt command?

You can use poweroff

Alpine Linux init system has been described in its docs

Alpine Linux Init System

Equivalent to shutdown -h now from traditional GNU/Linux systems: poweroff

Equivalent to shutdown -r now from traditional GNU/Linux systems: halt
