Ath10k: Regulatory domain changed but wlan0 not effected

I’m looking into setting up a WIFI access point on my pcengines APU2C4 router. Following the WiFi: Enable support for 5GHz AccesPoints with DFS thread on Phabricator and @alain fabulous work on getting a Compex WLE600VX card with the ath10 chipset up and running, I’m having issues changing the regulatory domain for the wifi card.
While the T452 thread covers the implementation of the ath10k on vyos 1.2 Crux by using the outdated method of compiling your own kernel, I’m trying to get the same wifi card up and running on vyos-1.3-rolling-latest.iso. Thanks to the vyos developers move towards buster as the underlying version of debian and the use of the upstream kernel, the card is properly detected without further adjustments:

The wifi card still needs the additional steps of rebuilding wireless-regdb as documented in T452:

  1. On a Jessie build machine, do:
    A. sudo apt-get build-dep crda wireless-regdb
    B. git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/sforshee/wireless-regdb.git
    C. cd wireless-regdb
    D. vim db.txt
    E. Restrict regdom settings for your country according to local law! For Germany, this means
    disabling channels greater 140 by prepending a # to the line: #(5725 - 5875 @ 80), (25 mW)
    F. make
    G. fakeroot checkinstall -D --install=no make install
    2. copy deb package to vyos
    3. On a VyOS instance, do:
    A. install package on vyos: dpkg -i <your-wireless-regdb-package.deb>
    B. reboot

With the hostapd sourced and configure set the output of sudo iw reg get sill looks like this

Edit2: @admins Sorry for double posting this thread. Please delete the other one

Hello!
Debugging, in this case, could be a true hell: some wireless cards can not change the regulatory domain due to some internal (hardware/firmware) limits, even if all software work properly. But, let try to at least get maximum information, which could help to isolate the problem.
Try, please, to collect all possible logs from the system (kernel module, hostapd, crda, etc.), they must help to recreate the configuration process, as a regulatory domain can be configured multiple times by different software.

Here we go

I have some thoughts on my mind, regarding changes I made in comparison to T452:

  1. I’ve used the current version of wireless-regdb 2016.06.10-1, which is provided in the debian stable repository. The first time I was building the regdb manually, vyos informed me, I was about to use an older version then the one installed.
  2. The hostapd I’m using is called hostapd_wle600vx_DFS.conf and was sourced with hostapd command. Do I have to follow a naming convention and does the file need to live in a certain directory?
  3. Does the order of things matter in which I installed my homebrewed wireless-regdb , set regulatory domain DE and so forth? I tried to set up the wifi card in different order with always the same result…
