I am almost 100% positive this machine does not have BIOS at all; modern Intel machines do not, and from the number I would assume your model is newer than mine, though one can never be sure.
That said, the inability to disable the USB-3 controller is most certainly a DELL issue, and if they lump the USB-2 and USB-3 into one setting based on LOCATION that is supremely stupid. It would not surprise me, but it is still stupid.
I have an older Dell XPS (not for FreeBSD, it is a Wintendo) and I can check its UEFI if it seems useful, but I am pretty sure I could disable the USB-3 specifically without rendering ti unable to use a keyboard and mouse.
Suddenly the animals look shiny and new
