If they built SPIoverGPIO or I2CoverGPIO or some other serial bus over
GPIO, then you do not see any changes between channel switches. Or
they could use some non GPIO interface to communicate with external
filter (embedded SPI, I2C or even USB or PCI of SoC).

Possibly, you could see some changes during change. Try check GPIO
pins with oscillograph during channel change.

Or you could put device in continuous scan (e.g. use STA mode and
enter some not available SSID to put device for infinite AP search)
and then read GPIO register state in circle. That trick does not
reveal actual protocol, but shows GPIO lines in use, if any.
