3.13 is 14.04's 'official' kernel. They do have the 16.04 kernel
available (4.4) for 14.04 which I've been using successfully with wireguard.

They do indeed maintain these kernels beyond mainline's EOL (instead of
sticking with one of the LTS versions for their... LTS release).
Thankfully 4.4 is an LTS version so 16.04 is in a better default position.

It's easy enough to work around if this is out-of-scope for wireguard,
which it sounds like it is.
