I have been 30 block away on my farm in Minecraft Bedrock because my simulation distance is in 4, I did that because the tutorial said so, but he said I can use any solid block for Enderman to spawn, so I used smooth stone (because it looked kinds cool) and they don't spawn in, I tried replacing it with the end block, and worked.

Is this a bug?

  • That makes sense, so I'd say yes. Slabs are spawnproof, but not smooth stone, just their slabs.

An Enderman can spawn on any solid surface that has at least three empty spaces above at light level 7 or less. They are the only mob that spawns in all 3 dimensions.

Just like all other mobs, Endermen need to spawn on a solid, opaque block. You can pave an area with half-slabs, stairs, or glass, among other things, to prevent them from spawning there.

Here is a list of spawnproof blocks, and Smooth Stone is not listed.

    A small observation: bottom half-slabs are spawn proof, but top half-slabs are able to spawn mobs just like any regular block.
