According to https://wikidevi.com/wiki/TP-LINK_TL-WDR3600, the device has two wifi adapters, one built-in into the AR9344 SoC with only 2.4GHz enabled and an AR9582 with only 5GHz enabled. Likely done to allow connections on both bands simultaneously.
Are you sure this is the AR9344, not the AR9582?

You are correct, I only expected 2 radio entries when looking into "dmesg", but there's a 3d further down.
This is in fact the 958x.

The on-CPU devices on those routers never show up on the PCI bus, as I verified on a TL-WR1043ND and a TL-WDR3500.
The TL-WDR3500 uses the same card, just looked on the 3rd router.

I've got the 1.0 versions of those routers, so the 9582 from Wikidevi is correct.
