Whether users of unmodified devices from major manufacturers are subject to a de-facto broadcast flag restriction does not matter.
What matters is that it is legal to develop and use devices that are not bound by this restrictions.
In the digital world, the difference between "notionally allowed to" and "legally prevented from" is big, because it only take a few people to come up with something new and, with time, change rules, if only there are not legally prevented from doing so.
