What you see is all the VX-7 driver supports. So, no, you aren't missing
How fully developed each driver is depends on several factors. Each radio
has to be reverse engineered. The length of time a radio is on loan may be
limited. The time the original author has to work on the project may have
also been limited. So it isn't unusual for a support for a radio to start
out with the bare minimum. Any further development requires someone with
access to the same radio with and interest in taking the project further.
The UV-5R started out with just basic support and a couple dozen settings.
Then several other interested developers over the last two years or so have
continued working on the UV-5R driver to the point where it supports nearly
every setting that the factory software has plus a few more.
