You would have to ask the developers, but I can say there is no way I would convert existing post types and taxonomies on an old site and I’d leave them as they are. I would only use ACF for this on new sites or if adding new post types/taxonomies to an old site. Why fiddle with something that’s working? I’m assuming you are using ACFE for other things as well and don’t plan on removing that plugin.
