Why not Apple AirPort Expresses on eero network?

Used 6-node Google mesh Wi-Fi for several years until Google bricked them with buggy firmware updates that they would not acknowledge. Replaced with 4-node eero Pro network. Google supported 4 Apple AirPort Expresses (in bridge mode) driving 4 sets of powered loudspeakers around the house. Eero Technical Support took 10 days to figure out that AirPorts were causing  eeros to mis-report device connectivity (many devices reported connected to wrong eeros, wired vs. wireless wrong). 1. Why is this? 2. Why can Google work correctly but eero not? 3. Can eero fix this? In the end, I replaced all AirPorts with Chromecast Audios, but they've been discontinued with no obvious replacement planned, so future parts replacement looks grim. Otherwise, loving this eero Pro network, but wondering if it will support multi-hundred mbps Internet when StarLink goes live. Thoughts?
