Corsair Link settings persist even AFTER Link is uninstalled, even outside Windows???

question's in the title

Corsair Link is suppose to be like MSI afterburner for GPUs? right? MSIafterburner can alter GPU settins core & vram clocks etc. but as soon as the app is closed & windows is rebooted the settings revert back to default until the app is relaunched

but apparently CLink doesn't work that way: I wanted to test that app & tinkered a bit with fan settings : chose to set fan to a minimum non-null speed
then I uninstalled CL (but without resetting fan back to default profile)

guess what even after uninstalling CLink (and also uninstalling associated components, AND removing all 'Corsair' registry entries & files I could find) the new fan settings are still applied

even weirder: the settings also apply *outside* windows, even at PC startup (default fan profile is silent, but now the fan spins slowly & keeps spinning as soon as PC is turned on as per the new profile I tested)

so this suggests that the PSU's settings are stored INSIDE THE PSU ITSELF?

like a "CMOS" or something built into the unit?

so how do I revert to default simply? (without reinstalling CL, setting fan to default, then uninstalling CL?)
there's no "reset" switch on the PSU (it's an RMi type unit btw)

I mean this sort of design sounds potentially dangerous what if I'd selected something more critical like rail mode, and set it to single-rail (as opposed to default setting Multi rail) would it remain on single-rail even if I rebooted the PC?
