[PBP] USB 2.0 devices on left USB-A port compatibility

(in short: USB 2.0 devices don't work on the USB-A 3.0 port and I'm asking if this is normal behavior)

I've tried to see if this question has been asked before but typing usb into the search function will tell you that the word is too short, oops.
Didn't find it in the Wiki either, so here we go:

I've been testing my new Pinebook Pro and I've noticed that USB 2.0 devices won't be properly recognized on the left USB-A 3.0 port.

I've tested two thumbdrives so far, both of which will work well on the right side USB-A 2.0 port.
So I can rule out the devices are faulty.

But connecting them on the left side will produce errors about the device not accepting he setup address and eventual unability to enumerate the device (sorry, different notebook here so I can't paste, but it's quite generic. I will provide logs later, if needed).

I've tried a USB-A 3.0 hard drive that works well (with Pinebook wall plug connected), so the USB-A 3.0 port seems to be fine for those.

My question: Is this normal behavior? Are others seeing this?
