You've already done that by limiting the EAP methods on the
server. If the device can't connect now then it's device
configuration as you said.

Yes, people do that with setup or onboarding tools. That's just
the way it is. Look at it in a good way - at least you can make
sure all clients have the correct CA trust and security settings.
Manually configured devices are notoriously bad at this.
