Strange behavior HomePod Mini.

Strange behavior HomePod Mini.

I’m on iOS 14.6 just like my HomePods and Apple TV 4K (original not new.) The same behavior was on 14.5 and 14.5.1. The card in the Home app for the HomePod stereo mini-pair that I have will occasionally display the word “Account” in red text at the bottom of the board. A circle with the word Account in it also appears in the status line. Long press on the tile, I will see a text that will direct me to “update my account in the iCloud settings on the iPhone. If I do nothing, the text eventually disappears. Functionality does not seem to be affected. The music players work very well and Siri responds correctly even to personal requests. I’m not sure why this is happening or what it means, so I thought I’d ask here? I also have a stereo pair of original HomePods and a third HomePod mini that doesn’t seem to be affected.
