FireOS 7: Missing Bluetooth HID Device profile support

Trying to use the BluetoothHidDevice profile introduced in Android 9 (API 28) on a Fire HD 8 Plus (10th Generation) FireOS 7.3.1.4

returns the following error in the logs:

BluetoothHidDevice: Could not bind to Bluetooth HID Device Service with Intent { act=android.bluetooth.IBluetoothHidDevice }

Is this an error or was this feature intentionally left out? If it was left out, will it be supported in the future on the Fire HD 8 (Plus) or any other FireOS device?

is there someone from the Fire OS development team able to answer this question?

As far as I know the only change needed to enable this is to set

profile_supported_hid_device=true

in this file:
