That "SCAN command" is referring to the wpa_supplicant control interface
SCAN command. There is nothing in the configuration file that control
those operations, i.e., this is for the purpose of external tools
requesting a scan to be performed. This would be set separately for each
scan, e.g., if you were to run a command like "wpa_cli scan passive=1".
