Is the Origin property here a host setting/BIOS attribute? I don't 
believe it is. From a PLDM perspective, this is a sensor that the host 
can update and notify the BMC via an event, for eg. Even if you make it 
read-only, it is not a setting for the host firmware - which is what 
BIOS attributes are meant for.
