Intuit CNAME records and blocking of logging.api.intuit.com

Intuit's TurboTax software is very chatty to internet domains, beyond intuit.com. I see that logging.api.intuit.com is blocked by NextDNS Ads & Trackers, as well as No Tracking lists.

However, when denied, TurboTax seems to contact the upstream CNAME domains for logging.api.intuit.com. Those domains don't seem directly blocked.

While this doesn't seem to be CNAME Cloaking, doesn't it defeat blocking of logging.api.intuit.com? Or am I misunderstanding this?
