It has registers to program DIMM slots configs. fwcfg does not enhanced
it in any way. And you cannot program more than 4G memory there may be
even less. So what do you mean by "program it itself"? Program CMOS
itself? (What for? QEMU does not care). Or program 440fx DIMM config?

It does not support much less exotic 4G.
