I definitely will because I have found a strange thing.

The re0 NIC receives both tagged and untagged frames from a switch.
When I monitor the incoming traffic with "nghook -a re0: lower", I see
that both tagged and untagged frames are merged into one untagged
stream, i.e. ng_ether somehow strips the vlan tag from frames.

If I only knew how to obtain unmodified frames for further processing
within the netgraph system, I would know how to build my transparent

I have not found any relevant messages or options I could set for
