I don’t see how removing the CFA would affect the FWC. Maybe that camera uses a different nonlinearity threshold.

Is this spec typically published or is it left less clear?

I’ve never seen a regular consumer camera manufacturer spec FWC.

Sensor manufacturers used to do that, at least some of them. Thinking Kodak spec sheets.

But I don't think FWC is a firm boundary, it may depend on the requirement of linearity.
