Dirac usually adds some DSP delay so I am wondering if multiroom syncing adjusts for that.
To be clear, the M10 is designed to be a superior 2.1 or 2.2 channel all-in-one streamer/DAC/amp for music, with one pair of speakers in one place.
It is the BluOS system it uses for control which is designed to do that expanded shared use of music sources into other areas of the home. Other Bluesound player products such as Node 2i and Vault 2i, or player-speakers can connect with the M10 to play the same music on a pair of systems, or all play different sources and playlists on up to something like 64 different units. The BluOS is a simple way to get music everywhere without expensive Control4 or similar hardware and software solutions from custom installers.
Yes, the BluOS will send music to a HomePod, though you really don't need Airplay 2 for it because BluOS uses your home wireless network for most everything, and that'll usually be a higher quality signal.
