The CAPWAP information isn’t hardcoded to the AP. When the AP is reset or loses connection, it will check in with a server called the redirector to see where it is currently registered to. Once it reaches the redirector, the redirector will tell the AP where it is currently registered and then the AP will populate that CAPWAP information. You can manually change this information with the steps in the guide I’ve linked below, but when the AP checks in with the redirector again it will change the information back to reflect the current registration information in the redirector.
