the MX 25l3206e SPI only holds 4Mb, so it's probably the "Bios" equivalent. Not sure if the firmware image from QNAP also contains a version of this (they could... possible that the firmware update also include a SPI flash sequence)

But the guide would not work on a dead device (where the SPI flash has failed/is partially garbled), basically OP is missing the U-Boot startup sequence for his whole device

you would need to de-solder the flash from the board and reporgam it

This is exactly the reason why I am asking to somebody to provide me this image. Had no luck to find it on qnap website.
In the first post You can find my dump of SPI flash. On a first glance it contains non-bootable garbage.
