Not sure what you mean with "not supported". It works in all usage scenarios I have thrown at it so far and it's pin sharp.

* Sigma 150mm 1:2.8 APO MACRO DG HSM

Bought quite a number of years ago.
I mean that Canon say (According to ... eting.aspx)
That it is only guaranteed to work with some Canon lens).

Canon engineers have specified that only the lenses listed below are officially compatible with the focus bracketing feature. However, reports exist of additional lenses appearing to be supported by this feature. While it seems safe to say that all RF lenses will be supported, that expectation has not been confirmed by Canon. We also do not know why official compatibility is limited to this list of lenses, though the lenses on this list seem like logical choices for use with this feature. "We absolutely cannot guarantee proper Focus Bracketing operation when third-party lenses are attached."

Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens
Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM Lens
Canon RF 35mm f/1.8mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro Lens
Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens
Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens
Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens
Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro Lens
Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens
Of course - as you have shown - it does not mean it will NOT work.
Just Canon didn't have time to test it with other lens or wanted to encourage people to only buy Canon lenses
