OK, I'm curious, if I don't ever turn WLAN on, am I already in the
lowest power state?

I.e., if I make sure none of the Debian /etc/init.d/* or other boot
scripts on my GTA02v6 attempt to do any WLAN related operations, will
the WLAN be already in the lowest power state, or do I need to take
additional actions?

This is what I understand the other three antennas are like: if none
of the boot scripts issue commands related to them, they will remain
in their off states.

(Also I hope non of this persists across reboots.)
