It looks to me as the Devolo Magic 2 Device has Ethernet ports. The Linkit Smart 7688 is a bare Development board with no Ethernet socket. The only way to configure a openWRT without wifi, is to buy another tool. A serial to usb adapter and wire the bins to the RX/TX of the board.
In my eyes its no security risk to enable the accesspoint feature in the same way as Mediatek does in the official firmware on a dev-board.
I would also apply the same forced self defined password to the same mac-adress based ssid as described in the manual  <https://labs.mediatek.com/en/download/ih80Qtjo> so a user that buy’s that device can switch to recent openWRT OS without to read separate doc’s.
could look like:

do you agree in this?

Good. I noticed that already.
Does Luci already provide a check if a password exists before login?
Mediatek developed a selfmade reduced GUI to force Users to set a Password before a Login is possible.
Its made as a Web-form that checks if a password exists and forces the user to set a password if none exists.

If not, do you agree to let me develop such forced password seting?

I will test this packages after solveing Number 1 & 2.
