It does provide only Bluetooth.
Although the ESP32 does have WiFi hardware, there is no support in OnStep, because of technical reasons too long to explain here.

If WiFi is needed, then this board is not a good fit.
Not exactly true. Like all of the ESP32 based versions a Wemos mini (with the SWS firmware) can be attached to the SerialB (Serial2) port pins (designated TX2, IO5 and RX2, IO13). Then you would have both Bluetooth and WiFi.
