If this is true the database may need to be adjusted to account for these. This is relevant for 5/10 MHz channels, where we currently assume 1/4 and 1/2 TX power respectively (i.e. assume a spectral power limit being reached exactly for 20 MHz channels) which doesn'​t allow using the full power if the spectral power limit isn't exactly that.
