Yes because some NAND parts are broken and do not support set feature
while working naturally at an higher rate than the slowest default one.

If you look at the table 3.4 of your NAND part specification, you can
see that it supports mode 0-4. Hence the core will suppose it can
switch the controller timings to mode 4. Now, is your controller able
to support these speeds? Maybe it only supports non-EDO modes (0-3)
and mode 4 cannot be achieved?
