Sorry for the typo. Will fix it.

Yes. This feature is always on.

NAND Controller counts zero bit when read data, and compare zero bit
count with empty threshold to determine whether data is mostly 0xff.
If zero bit count is less than the threshold, bit[12] of register
NFI_STA, STA_EMP_PAGE in mtk_nand.c, will be set as 1.
