    I have tried testing this by changing the authentication type in my existing gmail account. Thunderbird simply errors that the authentication type oauth is not supported when connecting to the mail server.

    I still have to go to google and disable the "use less secure apps" and see if it works then.

    I think we might have two mutually exclusive setup options based on settings at Google.
