startLocationUpdatesAsync crashes app on SDK 38 / Android / Managed

In the Expo app and compiled version, having background fetching while the app is running crashes the app when opening after the app is killed:

Effectively startLocationUpdatesAsync is completely broken in the managed workflow for Android which means one cannot have a location-based app function properly in Expo’s managed workflow.

I’ve heard rumors that this is fixed for SDK 39.0 but none of these threads mention that it was fixed.

Can someone from Expo comment on the state of this issue?
