It seems to me that there is no precise documentation for this at our disposal
I remember the same question on the French forum, but not what it was about!
I found this:

The motherboard supports 5.1 surround sound. If the computer does not have the required audio jacks for a 5.1 configuration, additional hardware is required to use 5.1 surround sound.

It would seem, then, that sometimes, it is not possible, after what is said, is not very explicit, what does this remark mean exactly ... "" additional hardware is required to use 5.1 surround sound. ""
Now, to check, you have to see if you have an audio control panel of this type, the detection, configuration is done here:

If nothing is detected, it means that your audio ports are not compatible for it!

Here, I am in stereo configuration, we see that only the green port is highlighted, normally if it works, the others must be visible, I do not have what it takes to test unfortunately!
