Just discovered this thread because I'm having the same issue. Didn't know this was a bug. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. 

I have the same problem. This is terrible and frustrating!

Same behaviour here. Why don't they just admit that ODFB does not work in conjunction with SharePoint? It never has in my experience. Why are they rolling this out when t

We recently did this, but had to use SCCM to gather the information from the managed PC's to do this versus something that was available on the server-side.

The relevant policy is "Prevent the usage of OneDrive for file storage". You should disable it.

Does the OneDrive.exe sync client (aka Next Gen Sync Client) support modern authentication?

I can only find reference to the fact that the Groove.exe version supports it, but not the OneDrive.exe version.
