I'm on BIOS A06, but I wouldn't /expect/ any of the stable (A**) BIOS
releases to change any behaviors like this.

What card the machine shipped with won't have a bearing on the behaviors
with the current card. There aren't any factory processes that change
the BIOS based on the card, just processes that would add newer firmware
directly to cards that support it.
