Nuki 3.0 possible only in Homekit mode?


I’m really sorry for asking so many questions, I’m just trying to understand how the Nuki software works.

My question is:

What happens if I pair and set up the lock and then pair it with the HomePod mini smart home and then delete the Nuki user. So I “use” the lock in Homekit mode only, so to speak. Is there a downside to this? Is this just turning the device back into a regular Homekit device?
