I don't use Archlinux anymore and thus can't be affirmative but I
think this is not really a problem because this feature is compiled in
the kernel instead of being available as a module.
You can verify if the crda service has been active (it starts but dies
after having modified regulatory settings) by just typing
 sudo crda
in a terminal.

I don't remember. I just use crda because by default regulatory
settings are for the USA. So all channels are not available and some of
them are attenuated.

this is probably an udev issue:
