Is power required to hold the motor in position?

No, the rotors are preloaded by springs pressing them against the piezo elements. This results in a holding torque whether the power is on or off.
The holding torque is about 2-3x the stall torque.

Being able to turn motor power off when not rotating can, in some applications, prove to be a very important power saving feature.
