They are supposed to be coming from the driver. However, it looks like
driver_nl80211.c has couple of bugs in this which make the numbers very
bogus. Fix is now available from Git:
http://w1.fi/gitweb/gitweb.cgi?p=hostap.git;a=commitdiff;h=dbdf58b053e4b839ec05ee19d73f96a448f1a863

(please also note that packet counts are not available with nl80211,
these are now reported as zero instead of some bogus number)
