Should automatic ignition of lights also set the brightness?

Should automatic ignition of lights also set the brightness?

So I’m starting to switch from Google Home to HomeKit and transfer to some devices that I use homebridge to allow some of my non-HomeKit certified devices on HomeKit.

Smart plugs work well, but I have an automatic for when I get home, which checks certain conditions and can turn on the lights at different levels. I think that when it is activated (even if it is set in the shortcut to, say, 30%), it only turns into the last brightness.

Now my question is: is this a deficiency of the homebridge / homebrudge module connecting my unsupported device or should a HomeKit certified device start at a certain% when set from a shortcut (or HomeKit only allows activation / deactivation activation)
