Using OneRNG hardware RNG can I get wireguard to use /dev/random

Hi List, 

Platform: Raspberry Pi4B, Raspbian Buster 10.  This device dedicated to
wireguard. uname -a: Linux wireguard 4.19.118-v7l+ #1311 SMP Mon Apr 27

I've used my OneRNG v3.0 external device to recreate my SSH moduli and
am now looking to recreate my wireguard keys.

According to the Wireguard docs it uses /dev/urandom:​/rmoriz​/58f1768218a4fbc4b318615bfb85111d
fd = open("/dev/urandom", O_RDONLY);
	if (fd < 0)
		return fd;
	ret = read(fd, out, len);
The OneRNG utilises /dev/random though - is there any way I can get
wireguard to use /dev/random instead (without recompiling) ?
