Please help me understand color modes for color led bulbs

I am using an automation blueprint that I love but it doesn’t work correctly on newer zigbee deconz bulbs…

the bulbs that work well say they are using color_mode: rgbw and the ones that don’t work well are using color_mode: xy

is there a solution to this? can I put the xy bulbs in rgb mode? I am able to use the color picker to change colors on both bulbs, and also call service to rgb value work fine on both bulbs, but the automation doesn’t. can I fix the automation or can I fix the supported color modes on the bulbs?
