Is there an iPhone alarm app that can wake the phone from being powered off?

I'm pretty sure the default iPhone alarm can't power on the phone if it's off.
Are there any third-party alarm apps that can??

In short no. If the power is off then only you can turn it back on, there aren't any apps that can do that for you.

This is rather weird. Every single feature phone I had would power itself on just to annoy me with alarm. Are you 100% sure iPhone doesn't power on?

If the phone is asleep it'll wake up to sound the alarm, but if you turn the power off then it won't turn itself back on.

True. And lets face it: many pre-2007 feature phones were smarter (in some regards) than iOS, WP etc etc.... But hey, on the plus side: we're all getting dumber, too. The shoe fits.
