In the factory where the cards are manufactured, presumably.
Or yes, I guess it may be influenced by the firmware as you suggest.

I would guess that all XO-1s produce the same region code, probably
US, which causes the driver to limit itself to channels 1-11. I don't
know the details but I think you could get in some trouble with the
FCC if you were to ship devices that could work outside of the 1-11
spectrum in the US.
