Yes, I do know ;-) and it can be adjusted. Please take a look at
driver/modules/hostap_ap.h (search for AP_MAX_INACTIVITY). Default
values are 5 minute max inactivity and then second between data poll,
disassoc, and finally deauth (which removes the proc entry). Currently,
this can be only changed at compile time.
