There is a workaround for this. When you are in teams right click the 3 dots next to General and click "open in sharepoint"
When in Sharepoint online click on the gear next to your picture or initials (in the top right of the screen)
Click on Library settings
Select Advanced Settings in General Settings
In "Opening Documents in the Browser" Change to Open in the client application
Go back to the documents in Sharepoint online and copy and paste the entire web address
Go Back to Teams
Right Click Documents Library and select Remove
Select the plus and select website
Name it whatever you like
Paste the document library web address you just copied
It will now open the desktop app as default
