Hi, could someone please help me understand the functional role of the motor override signals shown in the CF Bolt schematic (Mx_OVERIDE) and where their logic is implemented within the CF firmware?

The Mx_OVERIDE signals was intended to have a dual purpose if one rather run brushed motors but it has not yet been implemented. Instead they are enabling power to the connector and thus to the ESC if it is cabled using the connector. So in the current functionality the naming Mx_ENABLE is much more appropriate. You can see here where the mosfets are enabled.
