3rd party lenses with R6

Does anyone know if the eye, face and animal AF will work exactly as intended with any of the Sigma or Tamron 150-600mm lenses? Meaning, since it's not Canon glass, could the AF work slower or less reliably?

I'm considering buying an R6 when used ones start appearing a bit cheaper, along with one of those lenses. I'd kill to have that animal AF, it looks so amazing on the videos I've watched.  As a hobbyist, I'd never need another camera.

But I'd hate to spend so much money if the AF only worked properly on a canon telephoto lens, which I couldn't afford.
