It's kind of different though. The DDC controller is within the HDMI
controller, which is inside the SoC. Just like the pin muxer. As far
as the hardware goes, even on your board, you don't need that supply
so that the signal gets out of the SoC.

If the regulator is to power up some component on the path between the
SoC and the connector, then it should be attached there.
