conrep utilitly not able to read/set "Memory Interleaving" for bl465c G7

It seems like I am not able to get a proper reading of what the "Memory Interleaving" value is set at from the conrep utility (tried 3.30 from stk 8.70 and 3.40 from stk 9.40). I tried applying/re-applying a setting, but it didn't work. In the BIOS(F9), it is set to "No Interleaving", but I'll try to set it to "Channel Interleaving" in conrep and it won't happen. I have verified this by returning to the BIOS and also running STREAM benchmark. The bencharmk is half as slow when "No Interleaving" VS "Channel Interleaving". The conrep section for this is "AMD_Memory_Interleaving". Anybody have suggestions or confirm? I'd like to be able to tell which of our systems has "No Interleaving" and then set it to "Channel Interleaving" without having to go into the BIOS manually.

Hardware: bl465c g7 BIOS: 12/08/2012
conrep: 3.40 from the 9.40 STK (also tried 8.70 STK)
The "Power Management Options => Advanced Power Management Options => Memory Interleaving" is set to "No Interleaving"
However, running conrep, it does not detect this.
$ ./conrep -s -f /tmp/conrep.out
