from MAINTAINERS:

scripts/get_maintainer.pl has different behavior for files that
match F: pattern and matches of N: patterns. By default,
get_maintainer will not look at git log history when an F: pattern
match occurs. When an N: match occurs, git log history is used
to also notify the people that have git commit signatures.

F: entries are preferred to N: entries because the
get_maintainer.pl script does not assume that the
N: entries are exclusively maintained. Maybe use a
more comprehensive F: list like:

F: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/*/*owl-*
F: arch/arm/boot/dts/owl-*
F: drivers/*/owl-*
F: drivers/*/*-owl*
F: drivers/*/*/owl-*
F: drivers/*/*/*-owl*
F: include/dt-bindings/power/owl-*
F: include/linux/soc/actions/owl-sps.h
