Yes, it's a feature gap that is known:

The "mixed" environment issue [1][2] is one reason why the containers
are turned off by default. For reference, to enable the service you
modify it in /etc/kolla/globals.yml (after copying it) [3]. I really
struggled to on how to produce a Kolla compatible environment for
Ironic to operate in. Kolla is currently looking to integrate with
Bifrost in order to utilize ironic's services - stay tuned.
