If the alpha is associated, it must be predivided prior to linearization.
The reason is due to a luminance collision. A standard sRGB or 709 inverted TRC looks at a value of 0.5 identically when alpha is associated.
For example, a value of red 0.2 looks exactly the same as an associated alpha version of 1.0 red at 0.2 alpha. The resultant luminance will be off when linearized via an inversion of the TRC.
Predivide if associated and you shouldn't have any issues.
