It appears that, at least according to this Cisco help page:
that only WPA3-EAP 192-bit has this restriction and I could confirm it 
from my own testing.

All the WPA3-EAP (including when not setting the WPA3-192-bit)options do 
not work on my devices.

I tried on both my Android and iPhone and while I do get the 
username/password prompt,
it claims I inputted the wrong password.
