Is BT 5.0 required for BT Sig Mesh or can a BT 4.2 device / module work?

While the release timing of the two is similar, the two standards are independent of one another.

A 4.2 device can support BT Sig Mesh.

Thanks.  I also found it on the BT FAQ page.

What do I need to build a Bluetooth mesh networking product?

To build Bluetooth mesh networking products, you need compatible hardware and software. Bluetooth mesh networking requires an underlying Bluetooth LE 4.x or 5.0 stack, which supports the GAP Broadcaster and Observer roles, to both advertise and scan for advertising packets.

To use Bluetooth mesh networking protocols over Bluetooth LE, it’s recommended that you use an SDK from a Bluetooth module provider, which includes Bluetooth mesh networking protocols with corresponding APIs.
