Vendor name of router is hidden in some OpenWrt versions?

I'm using WiFi Analyzer and Network Analyzer Pro on Android, and in these two apps I don't see router manufacturer name for OpenWrt 22.03.2 r19803-9a599fee93 (TP-Link TL-MR3420 v5), but for example for LEDE Reboot 17.01.7 r4030-6028f00df0 (TP-Link TL-MR3220 v2) or LEDE Reboot 17.01-SNAPSHOT r3925-79c8f2f50b (TP-Link TL-MR3220 v2) I can see vendor name.
Is it hidden by OpenWrt or it depends since hardware?

This is based on the BSSID of the WiFi radio. The BSSID may be the MAC address of the interface or a random number. The apps look up a table with MAC addresses (only the first 3 Bytes) assigned to the vendors.
I.E. 60-32-B1, 0C-4B-54 and many others for TP-Link or 14-91-82, 80-69-1A and others for Belkin.Why there are differences between LEDE 17.01 and OpenWrt 22.03 you should ask the developers.
On my router ( with 21.03.5 and 22.03.1) the BSSID is the MAC address given by the manufacturer.
