Nest Floodlight doesn't turn off when app sets "Home"

I have turned off presense sensing in the home app. I just manually switch the app from "Home" to "Away".

I have three indoor nest cams, and they all turn off when I press "Home"

The nest floodlight/camera does not. I have stared at the settings and as far as I can tell, the two cameras are set up the same.

Any idea what I need to do to get the floodlight to pay attention to the "Away" state in the app?

If anyone finds this, I was able to fix this with the help of a very long support chat session.

The problem is that when you add an indoor camera to your home, it is automatically added to the "home" and "away" routines, so you do not need to do anything when adding an indoor camera.

The floodlight camera, when I installed it (and when I removed it and re-installed it), does NOT get automatically added to the "Home" and "Away" routines. You can, however, edit those routines manually to add the outdoor floodlight camera to the routines so that pressing "Home" or "Away" will also affect the floodlight.
