    Not entirely sure, and I don't think we've even seen a device where this
    code path runs (it only runs if a certain bit is set in the EEPROM).
    However, considering that this looks like it plays with some kind of
    radio stuff, and it's simple to implement, it makes sense to at least
    meet the behavior of the vendor driver (as opposed to violating some
    weird regulation somewhere).

    They are the edges of the channel range in most places.

    The vendor driver is full of stuff like this, many corners have been
    cut. Chances are that they just wanted to hit the edges in the common
    domain while not breaking things for channel 12~14 users, and didn't go
    the full way of implementing it accurately. I will email the developers
    for clarification.
