I'll do that in the morning.

In the meantime here's some info: I use systemd/networkd, I'd suspect
that it does the MTU in the link, before the network.

$ for f in /etc/systemd/network/*; do echo "========== $f =========="; cat $f; done
========== /etc/systemd/network/01br0.netdev ==========
[NetDev]
Name=br0
Kind=bridge
MACAddress=90:2b:34:9d:ed:6f
========== /etc/systemd/network/02enp3s0.link ==========
[Match]
Driver=r8169

[Link]
MTUBytes=6000
========== /etc/systemd/network/02enp3s0.network ==========
[Match]
Name=enp3s0

[Network]
Bridge=br0

[Link]
MTUBytes=6000
========== /etc/systemd/network/03br0.network ==========
[Match]
Name=br0

[Link]
MTUBytes=6000

[Network]
DNS=192.168.21.1
Address=192.168.21.2/24
Gateway=192.168.21.1

Also, here's a grep of the syslog, I'm not sure how much to trust the
ordering though:
