Call the sync before you freeze the file system, not after. You can't write to the file system when it is frozen, so it makes no sense to call sync after a freeze.
I don't think you have any control of whether the data is written physically to the disk or is still in the disk(s) buffer, the buffer you can flush is on the software side. Call sync and freeze.
