FS#2016 - [wpad] cannot use encryption on 802.11s mesh

Router A: ENS202EXT (Atheros/mac80211)
Router B: ENS202EXT (Atheros/mac80211)

Openwrt 18.06.1

wpad 2018-05-21-62566bc2-5 (current as of post)
also tried other versions of wpad (mesh, mesh-openssl)

I have tried both Mesh only and Mesh + AP.
I have not tried wpa_supplicant.

Currently have a mesh point that is working, but unencrypted. Along with an AP

LuCI does not allow the option to add encryption
If I force encryption in the configuration, mesh does not start up.
the package authSAE doesn’t exist I assume that I am not missing requirements...

With Unencrypted mesh, LuCI shows association between the routers
Routers show up on each other’s Associated Stations list
everything seems to be working, with manual range testing since I can’t ping between routers, I guess because of firewall.

the most closely related issue I could find is this

Not sure if this is by design or never resolved.
