Can I choose whether a HomePod (mini) is a Home Hub or not? And can I choose to allow a software update on a HomePod (mini)?

Cupertino, October 27, 2020

I'm currently using an iPad Air 2 on iOS 13.5 as my home hub and it's great. And I see a lot of people complaining about HomeKit on 14.1.

If I get a HomePod mini, I know it will come with the 14.1 HomeKit software. Will I be able to tell HomePod not to act as a hub and keep my iPad as the only hub?

And in the future, will I be able to tell it not to update if I see a bunch of people complaining about how the new update breaks everything?
