This function is over the top and in fact confusing.

Really, if you want to make semantics sane, you have to require that no
rules are installed when enabling offloading. The required sequence of
events if "enable offloading, add initial rules".

You are rejecting the enabling of offloading on one interface if any
interface in the entire system is doing macsec offload? That doesn't
make any sense at all.

Really, just require that a macsec interface is "clean" (no rules installed
yet) in order to enable offloading.

Then you don't have to check anything else at all.
