The maximum number of persons carried is part of the original EPIRB registration. I think it's likely that's where the 6 persons comes from.
Does anybody know of an EPIRB that could transmit the number of persons on board?

MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somali pirates said on Tuesday they had seized a yacht in the Indian Ocean with a British couple aboard and were taking the vessel to the Horn of Africa nation.
"The British couple are in our hands now. We captured them as they were touring in the Indian Ocean," a pirate called Hassan told Reuters. He said the two captives were healthy and ransom demands would follow.
