GPLv3 does not restrict "allowable use on the device manufacturer". It only places conditions (restrictions on the form) on distribution. The manufacture can use and modify the software as they wish, and after they give it to me, I can use it and modify it as I wish. Each of us has the four freedoms.
About device manufacturers not using our code, well, if their goal is to restrict us, then they would be using our code against us - so preventing our work from being turned against us is good.
