Curious as to the reason myself.
Only thing that comes to mind is modem location has one Ethernet to area where switch needs to be located and the modem location is a WiFi dead zone or would require even more additional Eeros to get full WiFi coverage then if you could hardwire the Eero after the switch more central.
I had to edit what I wrote cause the more I think about it I don't get why this is needed. Especially because there would be 2ea networking cables then between the switch and Eero(router) location to do what was asked. There also is at least 1 networking cable running between the modem and switch then as well.
