You will need to provide a reference for that assertion, because there is no mention of an "electromagnet actuator" in the LEAF service manual. Unless of course, by "electromagnet actuator" you were referring to the brake assist electric motor.
From the LEAF service manual, page BR-12:

Each of those components has a motor: brakes, steering and A/C.

Ingineerix apparently thinks that there is a single supercapacitor
