Eero behavior with certain HomeKit products

I have noticed that certain HomeKit devices behave strangely in the Eero app, specifically Apple HomePods set to stereo pair. At certain intervals, Eero “invents” that these devices have multiple IP addresses and even come across as wired devices. 

if I check the MAC address it doesn’t belong to any particular manufacturer and/or of course they are not wired. The only way I figure out what they are is when I see the HomeKit name inside Eero. Upon restart, the device can sometime disappear and goes back to the set name per MAC address. 

Anybody else seeing this? I assume this is affected by private IPs etc.
