First, I might be wrong on levels. However, if my memory is not failing me, bodhisattvas who realize 8th ground and above do not get reborn under the power of afflictions. They have only very subtle imprints of afflictions (like burnt seeds) that do not sprout. So, they take rebirth to benefit others.
I think they realize emptiness directly, and hence, have no cause to take birth under the power of afflictions. I am not sure they realize emptiness directly when out of meditative equipoise.
