Changes to Philips Hue that move other devices to the default camera in the HomeKit

Hello, I searched Google and Reddit and found some older threads, but so far, without a real solution. I use HomeKit, Philips Hue and other devices (eg Bosch Smart Home). Each time I make a switch to Philips Hue (moving a light bulb from one room to another) all other devices in this room in the HomeKit are moved to the default room. For example: In HomeKit in room 1 I have a motion sensor, a temperature sensor and a thermostat. In addition, there are 2 Philips Hue bulbs. Now I’m moving another light bulb from room 2 to room 1 using the Philips Hue app. Instantly, in HomeKit there are now 3 Philips Hue bulbs in room 1, but the two sensors and the thermostat have been moved to the default room. This happens every time. Older topics just suggest not using the original Philips Hue app, but can’t that be the answer? I don’t even know why Philips Hue is allowed to move other devices to HomeKit and why it keeps going. Is there anyone there with a practical solution to this problem? Thanks a lot!
