Out of curiosity I checked my journalctl boot logs and this is what I see:

  kernel: cfg80211: failed to load regulatory.db
  kernel: platform regulatory.0: Direct firmware load for regulatory.db 
failed with error -2
  kernel: cfg80211: Loaded X.509 cert 'sforshee: 00b28ddf47aef9cea7'
  kernel: cfg80211: Loading compiled-in X.509 certificates for 
regulatory database
