Feature "android.hardware.sensor.compass" not declared in managed workflow.

Hello !
I am building a navigation app for Android which mainly act as a compass. To achieve this, I use the DeviceMotion API from ‘expo-sensors’ in order to get the user’s device orientation relative to the north.

My problem is : Users without a compass in their device can download the app. Without this sensor, the app simply doesn’t work. I guess I could make the app check if there is a compass available with Magnetometer.isAvailableAsync() and display something in that case, but I’d prefer the app not to be available in the PlayStore for users without a compass.

When I upload my .aab bundle to the Google Play console and inspect the bundle here is what I see :

The feature android.hardware.sensor.compass is missing.
Because I am in managed workflow, I can not edit the AndroidManifest.xml myself and add the line : <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.sensor.compass" android:required="true" />

Is there a way to declare the use of this feature ?
