Why would you assume that? Just use whatever is your preferred technique for playing precisely articulated descending scales.

If we marked the cessation of every note the score would be a mess. Look at measure 2 - do we need to be told that the bass D should end on execution of the A? Similarly the low B in m.3, E in m.4 etc., etc. Of course not - notes with melodic function have a beginning and an end which we naturally control as part of our basic technique without the need for further instruction.
A reminder about open Es and As is possibly
justified for those without ears - I'd ditch them personally
Dyens is inconsistent however, and does overload the score in some cases, e.g. Measure 22 where the A is marked as stopped (there is already a perfectly clear rest indication) yet the E is not.
