Freedome prevents various iCloud sync features on macOS
This is a reasonably longstanding issue I have noticed, and it seems to affect other VPN providers—see this GitHub issue where (on 12th Dec 2022) a Mullvad developer says that they have figured it out and are working on implementing a solution

Sorry, my account is too new to post a clickable link.
Essentially, while connected via Freedome, various iCloud sync features are inhibited.
- Sync Safari bookmarks
- Upload files to iCloud via Finder
This issue does not affect me on iOS.
