Yes, how about:

The string (no matter which one) is currently only used to select the
subdriver. Then, the subdriver
will ignore which compatible string was used and it will detect the
variant by itself using the
chip id/version returned by the device.

rtl8367rb chip ID/version of the '67RB is already included in the
driver and in the dt-bindings.
