Description

I configured Orbot 14.0.8.1 to use bridges, and then set up my upstream firewall to block all connection attempts except to that bridge, yet Orbot still seems to try to connect to many other nodes in the public directory.

Note I have the same configuration on my laptop, and tor does not do this. If bridges are configured, Tor only connects to those IPs.

It should also be possible to observe by inspecting Orbot's connections on your Android device in OS Monitor app's "Connections" tab:
