Question about google signal and server side tagging

Is it a normal behavior that when activating google signals server side in the GA4 Tag that some visits (mostly only the first one) are going to region1.analytics.com (attached screenshot) ?

I tried alot but couldnt stop it, all other things are working as expected.

And another question. Google says on their server side manual

And they say you have to activate some checkboxes on the ga4 client

Is that needed too when using server side tagging with stape and when i want to use google signals?

Thanks

Hello,

my experience with the first part of the question is: yes. I made the exact same finding with Google Signals. So I assume that this is correct.

I can’t answer the second part. I haven’t set anything up yet. However, I find the question extremely interesting. Maybe someone can write something about it.

Best regards,
Sebastian
