We are working on changes to improve the experience when syncing large file collections.

Any news here at all? This is ludicrous that you have gone so long without an update.
The fact is, Onedrive syncing is just broken on large file counts - even some of our libraries with only 40k items suffer.
Dropbox has high IO on mechanical drives, but, a NVME fixes things and it can run very well with a library of 900k files, and likewise, not seen any problem with Google Drive.
The shocking thing is, Onedrive appears to work quite well on a Mac, but, it just seems that you can't get your act in order on Windows which makes no sense at all.
In fact, I would go to say that third party apps that mount Onedrive as a network drive do the job "ok" and I would say that you really need to reintroduce this feature in a supported way as it is so much more reliable.
We are on the verge of moving away from Onedrive and to Azure Files or back to a third party tool as we can't go on with this...
