M1 hotspot: ethernet and wifi both talking, causing 'relayed' status?

I have a SenseCAP M1 helium hotspot and I initially configured it for wifi but have since given it an ethernet connection. I notice now that my router tells me that the device is talking on both interfaces at the same time.

Normally, I guess I wouldn’t care but of course, I don’t want to be relayed and since I can only forward port 44158 to a single internal IP address, I suspect my hotspot is relayed about half of the time, no? (Helium Explorer says it’s not relayed but SenseCAP dashboard says it is. The dashboard itself claims to be more accurate than Helium app so maybe I really am relayed much or all of the time?)

How to manage this? Can I unconfigure or disable wifi remotely somehow? I don’t see a way in the SenseCAP dashboard unless maybe through the terminal CLI?

A better solution would be to have it use ethernet when available then fall back to wifi if needed. RFE?

Firmware version: 2021.10.18.0

Any guidance is appreciated!

So I physically accessed my M1 and connected via Bluetooth, told it to forget my configured wifi network and now it’s only talking on the ethernet interface per my router - good. Earnings are up a bit but I’ll need to monitor for a few more days.

The Sensecap dashboard however still shows relayed = yes while Helium Explorer still shows not relayed. The config is straight forward now (with wifi disconnected) so I think that Sensecap dashboard is incorrect. Sensecap dashboard is also not showing my correct public IP address so that may be the reason and a potential bug to be addressed.
