That makes me (as a outsider that has no real knowledge about the inner
workings of the Linux Wifi subsystem) wonder: Does it work in Windows?
Because if that's the case I wonder how Windows ensures everything
confirms to regulatory requirements & standards. If that handled on the
software level if the info is missing in the firmware? Or is there a
another place in the firmware structures where Windows looks for details
(and we don't).

Or is that a Linux-only machine that might even use a different firmware?

Ciao, Thorsten (wearing his 'the Linux kernel's regression tracker' hat)

P.S.: As the Linux kernel's regression tracker I deal with a lot of
reports and sometimes miss something important when writing mails like
this. If that's the case here, don't hesitate to tell me in a public
reply, it's in everyone's interest to set the public record straight.
