Stress pronouns vs En

Hello,

The lesson says: "In the case of de + [people], the preposition de remains and is followed by a stress pronoun (moi, toi, lui, elle, nous, vous, eux, elles)"

But in the video, there's an example "Vous connaissez des francais?" and the answer is, "Oui, nous en connaissons". Shouldn't it be: "Oui, nous connaissons d'eux"?

Les français is an anonymous group, so you get away with using en to refer to them.
