I don't think this was intentionally removed. But when I try to find both addresses of my dual stack Petrel 2 I only get the BLE one.
Let me stare at the code and see why we no longer add both of them.
(and in any case, if a device supports both BLE and BT, we should prefer BT because that's likely to be significantly faster)
