Can I apply 4.1.1 to this? I found unnecessary ARIA attributes.

The expand/collapse issue would be a 4.1.2 issue but the fact that a button is used instead of a link isn't really a 4.1.2 failure. The role of the element is announced so it satisfies 4.1.2. The fact that it's the wrong role is more of a usability failure. But that's just an opinion.
