Who says it is a bug?
Regulatory rules for Finland say max of 27dB.
Find a piece of legislation that says otherwise, and present it to wireless regulatory maintainer (Seth Forshee) if you want it fixed.

Then OpenWrt can be updated to latest.

In this case, these pages (https://w.wol.ph/2015/08/28/maximum-wif ... r-country/) are misleading even if they are dated to 2015-08-28 and should not be pointed out as a model.
Then @ispyisail should not use the site (viewtopic.php?f=14&t=12054&p=53673#p53667) and should use the site from you.

What I linked is what gets baked into the Linux kernel.
If you want to understand why something behaves in a certain way, go to the source.

People make mistakes. We are all now smarter as a community for talking about this issue.

Finally got response to the bug I reported:

So everything is actually OK.
____

Transmit power control (TPC) is required in this band, see [1]. Since
Linux does not implement TPC, the maximum EIRP must be reduced by 3 dBm,
so the value in the database is correct.
