Wifi at the Luci web interface

I face a strange behaviour. If I compile hostapd with openssl, the Luci web interface shows both wifis (2.4G+5G) as active and shows connected stations. If I compile hostapd with wolfssl, the Luci web interface shows only the 5G wifi as active and shows connected stations. The 2.4G wifi is shown in gray. On the network->wireless page, the radio for 2.4G is marked as 'Device is not active'. The SSID's are marked as 'disabled'. This occurs on a ASUS AX53U and a TP-Link WDR3600 router. The 2.4G wifi is running and stations are connected. Hostapd is build with the internal radius server activated. The setup for 2.4G is 8 wifi's with encryption wpa3, wpa3-mixed, sae and sae-mixed.
How does Luci retrieve the wifi information?
If I execute iwinfo, all wifi's of both radios are shown.
