Default ifconfig scan -- some networks are missing

When I run $ ifconfig iwn0 scan, some of the networks from around the neigborhood don't show up in the list.

Other computers in my house show a much larger list of networks. These are not OpenBSD machines. They are running Linux, Windows, and Android.

I have read the ifconfig(8) man page and also tried the following search terms in Google:
ifconfig scan site:daemonforums.org
There are references to the command, but nothing about the number of networks.

It seems that $ ifconfig iwn0 scan should be all I need to get a full list of available networks.

Please let me know if posting the output of any commands would be helpful.

Thanks to anyone who can offer assistance.
