More likely it's setting it just fine, but when it exits, nothing has
the tty open any longer so the settings are promptly reset back to some
kernel defaults.  (I've had run-ins with this phenomenon myself.)

No; if it were 1, there would be no difference between /dev/tty01 and
/dev/dty01.  The driver in question presumably pays attention to the
524288 bit of the minor device number.
