Apparently Synology will nag you about not using their branded RAM, but it functions completely normally. I'll have to keep the original stuff just in case there is an issue I have to officially supported RAM for troubleshooting.
Word of caution, I did a big RAM upgrade on an old Synology and while it "detects" the full module, the CPU couldn't actually address that much. When I hit the RAM threshold, Plex would send garbled transcodes to users. I have no idea if that would happen to my data so I plopped the original RAM back in, scrubbed the drives, and everything went fine.

I don't know if your specific model has that limit though.

The Synology memory check didn't find anything wrong with either module. And yeah, I got the nag too. (And for a bunch of hard drives/m.2 SSD's)
