Am I understanding correctly that switching CHIP_PWD to high/low was
supposed to turn the Ar6k on and off?
If so, does the brokenness of CHIP_PWD mean that the Ar6k needs a
firmware update to make this work?
And if that again is correct, is there a way to get this new firmware
deployed in the field?

What does this mean exactly? "can't turn off [...] once you trigger the
CHIP_PWD ping"?

And I do hope that suspend mode is not the final "solution" for this
