I'm not sure what you are asking here. Anyway, hostapd does not support
generation of a PAC file for out-of-band provisioning.

wpa_supplicant uses a custom format for storing the PAC information.
This file gets created automatically when using in-band provisioning.

In general, this should not matter unless you are looking into options
that disable in-band PAC provisioning (which, though, is not really
supported by hostapd).
