There shouldn't be any problem with the FEIE as long as you meet the requirements for claiming it - i.e. bona fide residence or physical presence test and you claim it only for what the IRS defines as foreign "earned" income.

The IRS can always challenge your foreign residence or physical presence, and might potentially challenge whether or not the income you excluded was, in fact, earned income. But unless they have some reason to doubt you or if they simply pick your returns for audit, why would they bother?
Cheers,
Bev
