That's certainly not the recommended practise that's ever
normally given here.

All RADIUS certificates should be based on private CA

This is better advice.

No. Use an internal CA with installers (such as eduroam CAT)
to push the config and root CA to the devices.

You might find a public CA the right balance between convenience
and security for yourselves, and many people do, but it's not
the correct advice for a secure network.
