Z-Wave JS debug log shows manual switch inputs but not updating in Home Assistant

hey all, hoping for some help! I have a bunch of Eaton RF9540 dimmer switches - manual changes on the switch do not update in Home Assistant. I checked the group associations and noticed no group associations to the controller were present. In this case the debug log shows the controller still gets communication from the switch with manual on/off inputs but no communication with manual dimming changes.

If I add a group association to the controller in Group 1 the debug log shows more info coming from manual on/off changes and there is communication with dimming changes but dimming changes are having the messages dropped. In all these cases home assistant is not reporting the updated states of the dimmer switch.

Is there a way to fix this or maybe a way to force a node refresh based on the debug logs?

Screenshots of default group associations and manually adding a association.

Silly debug log of when I press on/off manually on the switch without any group association:
