I confirmed the firmware version on my mount was also ES1A10B2.
The message thread you refer to discusses a short term issue that was never applicable to any production iEXOS mount delivered as far as I know.
Unless you installed the firmware available from August 5 ,2019 to October 15, 2019, you would never have seen this problem in the production version ES1A10B2 delivered after October 15, 2019.

 It seems that in vijaysam's case, if he did not install version ES1A10B2 last year then it was somehow installed on the mount at our HQ for some reason during that period.

Nonetheless, reinstalling the firmware will fix the issue.
