How do I use a Pro 6E as an extender?

I got 3 Pro 6Es, and I want to use 1 as the Gateway and the other 2 as extenders (only), so they hopefully don't compete with each other for a device's connection.

I've got the main gateway Eero hardwired to my ISP cable modem, and the other 2 Pro 6E's set up in wireless mode currently ... but I think some of my devices get pulled between different pods.  

Do the non-Gateway pods automatically go into extender mode?  Or do I need to do something special with them?  And is there a way to link specific devices to specific pods?
