ow3FTPworker SFTP/SSH fingerprint implementation and encoding algorithms

I am struggling with the use of the SFTP module.
Could anyone please enlighten me regarding supported encoding algorithms and the expected entry form in the know_hosts file?
Can / must they be set with a property I’ve overseen? Makes no sense to me.
How is SSH handling implemented in the Omnis / ow3 modules?

Omnis crashes directly if the provided fingerprint is not in an Omnis supported format - instead of giving a hint, what a wonderful way to inform you about an error.
Eg.: ssh-ed25519 AAAAC3NzaC1lZDI1NTE5AAAAIKMuBzXAohIpV7sbz2rxr47Gdkqo7pEVeT2ho+yNdll4

I cannot get Omnis to update the entry in the hosts file either (kOW3sshKHActionUpdateFile).
Same on Mac OS or Windows.

WinSCP or Cyderduck or Terminal haven’t got any issues with my SFTP Test environment based on drakkan/sftpgo:latest Docker image.
Using insecure connections is not an option here.
