It is mesh, and the satellites can daisy-chain off of each other. Early Orbi firmware(2016) required each satellite to connect to the main router, that changed within a few firmware upgrades I believe some time in 2017.
Is there a place where you read this? I cannot find any info that software fixed this and this would be a hardware limitation in my opinion.

It's a link to the RBK50 firmware update as to when Netgear added support for the daisy-chain topology. The RBK22 came out almost 2 years later (April 2018) and supported daisy chain out of the box.

My RBK23 is currently connected using a daisy-chain topology.

How does this compare to the TP-Link Archer C4000 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router that Costco has for the same price?

The $300 unit is AC3000 vs this AC2200.
Each AC3000 unit covers 2500 sq ft vs 2000 sq ft for each AC2200
AC3000 wireless back-haul speeds up to 1733mbps vs 866 on the AC2200
the AC3000 has 4 Ethernet ports on each router/satellite vs 2 on each for the AC2200

Curious if anyone knows first hand how this "entry" Orbi compares to the "top end" for tp link Deco M9 set. I read everywhere that Orbi's have fastest performance regardless if the specs are lower on paper

EDIT: AC3000 would be 1733-867-400
AC2000 would be 867-867-400

Don't fall for marketing with maximum simultaneous thoroughput when client devices (your phone, laptop, Wi-Fi connected devices) only utilizes one band while connected. Layman's terms, you'll see an added benefit from the AC3000 unit if your internet speed can go beyond 867mbps (commonly "gigiabit internet" packages). Otherwise the AC2200 should satisfy most of us on SD

Agreed, don't fall for maximum combined throughput speeds.

The backhaul speeds on the Orbi AC3000 units though are 1733 Mbps vs the Orbi AC2200 units@ 866 Mbps

Both systems have the same front-end speeds for client devices with speeds at 866 Mbps @ 5GHz and 400 Mbps @ 2.4GHz
