Ok, good, this might just be the acpi tables not set up properly for
this type of connection. Odd that the tables show it should work,
Heikki should know more about this.

If you plug a USB typeC device into this port, does it work? A docking
station is a little bit "different" in that it usually uses the PCIe
connection, not the USB connectors. Or at least that's how my Dell
docking station works last time I tried it[1]

[1] When the power supply for the docking station is bigger than the
laptop's power supply, you begin to wonder what is in that thing and
stop using it after a while...
