I made my first two recordings this weekend using two A10s (one SBD, one AUD), and not only did bluetooth control work seamlessly, but I was amazed get home and find that the two clocks seem to have been in perfect sync — I didn't need to do any time stretching to line them up in Audacity.

Anyone else know if this is an unreported feature, or if I just got super-lucky with my two devices?

Are you saying you hooked up multiple A10s to one device?

To one phone, yes. You have to alternate which one you're connected to, obviously, but it's not hard — just go into bluetooth settings and select the other one, then back to the REC Remote app. Takes maybe five seconds.

So they aren’t “in sync” per se. you still have to manually sync them. But once you do, their timing matches up and you don’t need to stretch one file or another?

Correct. I may have just gotten very lucky - the M10s I owned were certainly never in sync like this - but wanted to see what others have experienced.

Shane aka SEC1968 has a set of recorders which are a "lucky pair" that's too close to bother correcting for. His are Tascam DR-7's.
I can't think of any other instances!?

The Roland R-07 app allows simultaneous BT start/stop and monitoring of up to 4 devices iirc.
I only own 1 so I don’t know how synchronous they would run.
Roland R-07 -> FEL Communications Clippy EM172 or Roland CS-10EM
iPhone 8 -> Shure MV88 or Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset

I've generally had good luck until there's a file split.

BT isn't a syncing protocol, it was made for consumer electronics, so if one controller and two receivers, the start-stop will likely be off a few clicks.
