It needs to be described in detail what it is. Device tree bindings
generally don't list values to be poked into registers. They describe
something, and from that, the value to be poked into a register is
derived.

There is no 'usually' about it. You implementation forces them all to
be the same. You need to add error checking. If different DT instances
have different values, you need to issue an error and fail one or more
probes.

You also need to document this in the device tree binding.
