FFT controls happen through the 'shift', 'direction', and 'scaling'
properties. See, e.g., here:

The control word is constructed in the block from those settings.
However, let's say you would want to write it yourself, UHD will take
care of endianness etc. The LSB of the your write from Python will the
LSB of the register in the FPGA eventually.
Note that you don't need to do this here.
