I can understand, given their mandate, that they chose to remove the tracking backend, but it's absolutely negligent that they failed to sufficiently inform their users.
Removing a health safety feature without making it very clear that you've done so is obviously a terrible idea.
I'm not against the removal of the code given that some people using the OS require a higher degree of defense against tracking, but since its removal broke support for contact tracing, it should have been explicitly clear to the user.
