I would be shocked if all of the requirements of IEEE 802.11af are handled in the hardware! Go back and actually read and understand that specification. I do not expect the hardware to be querying a geolocation database (often multiple databases) and acting accordingly.

I have been watching this specific bit of spectrum from the Wireless Microphone / FCC side for a decade now. If systems start coming into use that do NOT follow the required procedures there will be hell to pay as these specific frequencies are in use by lots of other users besides wireless networking.
