This might be due the fact, that the class compliant mode is not aimed
at Linux and/or general computing, but there to support iPads (that's at
least the case in the Fireface UFX series).

I received this fun piece of information from an RME employee at
superbooth two years ago. The channel limitations in class compliant
mode in e.g. the RME Fireface UFX (II, +, etc.) are hardcoded and
matched to the capabilities of some iPad version that was supposed to be
supported back then (and is by now long EOL).

Given, that these devices cost up to several thousands of EUR, this is a
pretty sad state of affairs tbh.
