The revocation of an SPK follows a very similar process as described in PPK Revocation. However, the difference is that the SPK and its corresponding revocation ID are part of the boot image (authenticated using the PPK). The revocation of an SPK is done by modifying the 256-bit SPK revocation ID field in the eFUSEs (representing 256 possible revocations). This revocation ID acts as a pointer to a revocation list. If the device boots with an old SPK and ID, the RCU or PLM flags this as invalid and prevents the device from booting with that image/partition.
