Maxime made it clear, that network layer as a consumer of the nvmem provider
doesn't need to know about this byte order swapping details, so this byte
order swapping should be implemented in nvmem as well, as a bonus it doesn't
matter if you're going to swap 3, 6 or whatever other amount of bytes
described by the reg property, so this functionality could be reused which is
always good.
