Try using ipmipower from the freeipmi-tools package to check power on
the BMC:

  ipmipower -u maas -p <password-for-bmc-in-maas> -h ip-of-bmc -s

The rack controller (not the region controller) talks to the BMC. So
watch the rackd.log not the regiond.log as I suspect useful things will
show up there.

Also, you need to have a route from the rack controller to the BMC. If
your BMC is on a network that the rack controller cannot reach, that can
cause these issues.
