Google Play submission warning about ""?

The last 2 times when submitting an app to Google Play we have seen the warning below. We do not use Segment (we use Firebase Analytics) and we cannot find any reference to in the codebase. I have contacted Play Support but thought I’d also see if anyone else in this forum has gotten/resolved this. Thanks!

Your app com.XXX.XXX version code ######## includes SDK, 4.8.2 or an SDK that one of your libraries depends on, which collects personal or sensitive data that includes but may not be limited to Advertising ID, Android ID identifiers. Persistent device identifiers may not be linked to other personal and sensitive user data or resettable device identifiers as described in the User Data policy.

Starting from August 9, 2022 midnight (UTC), new app releases containing the SDK version(s) that do not comply with the User Data policy may be blocked from release. You may consider upgrading to a policy-compliant version of this SDK that does not include the violating code if available from your SDK provider, or removing this SDK from your app.

According to your SDK provider, you may consider upgrading to 4.10.1, and/or contacting your SDK provider to see if a suitable later version might be available. Google is unable to endorse or recommend any third party software.

ACTION REQUIRED: Upload a new compliant version AND deactivate the noncompliant version.

You have to find the plugin that is adding the and see if there is a more up to date version that uses a newer SDK, or if the plugin allows you to configure the version to use.
