Description (partial)

Packets destined to SVI MAC address are dropped in Layer 2 only VLAN when transiting the Nexus 9000 which owns the destination mac address  on another SVI.

If traffic is destined to peer IP SVI mac address, Nexus 9k1 that receives the packet bypasses bridging, punts it  to CPU, routes L2 packet to peer SVI.

This behavior is applicable to 9300 (NFE) and 9500 with 95xx,96xx,94xx line cards

This bug is not applicable to 9200 , 9300-EX and 9500 with 9700-EX line cards

Traffic received on L2 only vlan, destined to its own mac address of another SVI that this box owns.

Likely scenarios to see this condition include:
- transparent firewall bridging
- hair pinning traffic
- L2 load balancers
