There are a number of possibilities.

1) They have better programmers that can handle abnormalities.

2) They realize that there are always going to be flaws in software
and hardware and are smart enough to work around it.

This is of course assuming that the actual problem is a defective
controller that every other OS can handle correctly. If, and this is
assuming that is correct, then why doesn't FreeBSD just code what the
defective controller is allegedly sending and accept it?

The simple fact the the code worked in versions prior to 12.x makes
this excuse that the controlled is defective highly suspect.
