There are good reasons to completely disable WIFI, yet Rasbian doesn't allow it.

I think the second part of that statement is incorrect.

TBH, you don't need to do anything, this is early release software, you don't need to use it if you don't want to. If your Pi4 is working well enough, you don't need to update the bootloader until all the wrinkles of the updates system are ironed out. Too late...! See https://www.raspberrypi.org/fo...
