ewwwwwwwwwww, could this be proof they really are using that data?
i see no reason in the world anything should be stored in your ROUTER to cause such things, its just a router, just moving data.
Your router has a MAC for its wifi radios, and a MAC for its WAN port...but the WAN port is behind your ISP's modem...sooo nothing there, only WIFI radios.
this did stand out in the linked thread
By default, Firefox uses Google Location Services to determine your location by sending:
your computerís IP address,
information about the nearby wireless access points, and
a random client identifier, which is assigned by Google, that expires every 2 weeks.
Disable your data using about:config
