Bluetooth gets disabled when Virtualbox Windows 10 vm is running

Hello Garuda users.

Plasma 5.25.1
CPU: Intel i5-9300H (8) @ 4.100GHz
GPU: Intel CoffeeLake-H GT2 [UHD Graphics 630]
Virtualbox 6.1.34 r15063

Bluetooth works fine normally but as soon as Windows 10 boots completely in Oracle Virtualbox ,the bluetooth connections are dropped , and KDE bluetooth widget shows "No devices found"
If I press enable bluetooth , then also nothing happens .

But most of the time when the Windows OS shutdown ,it automatically re-enables the bluetooth and if it does not enables I have to run command in root

modprobe -r btusb
modprobe btusb

Now I have three questions

  1. Is it expected behavior ?
  2. If it is then how to prevent windows from snatching my bluetooth connections ?
  3. If no then how to permanently remove this bug ?
  1. No
  2. Make sure USB devices are not being filtered (sent to the guest OS)
  3. Depends on cause

Yes USB devices are being filtered but my bluetooth is inbuilt provided by SOC
