I'd say that LineageOS isn't privacy respecting since it uses vendor's
Bluetooth and WiFi propietary firmware.

*One could argue that such firmware it's necesary* (and better option
that using a wifi antenna connected to the phone through OTG usb cable.
Like the Replicant phone's do AFAIK). *And it's true.*

Also this
is true: *that firmware is a backdoor from the manufacturer (for i.e.
samsung) that gives him I/O access to the filesystem.
