Some of my devices are making questionable choices to which AP they connect to (MR2200ac) leaving them with only 1/5 signal strength.

Can you manipulate this in the set up?

The wifi standard has specified that clients decide to switch to another access point in Mesh setups. The router has no task here.
Fortunately some mesh systems have now implemented AP steering, a mechanism that is built in the router and force clients to move.
I know my Fritz mesh uses AP steering, not sure about synology.
Sometimes new drivers on the client help.
