From the interim report

"The FDR indicated action of lowering of the landing gears at 7221 ft at around 10.5 Nautical Miles from Runway 25L.​​​​​​"

Yup, it does say that - sorry, my initial post could have been clearer. The report doesn't say anything about the gear not going down because of the speed protections.
