SubjectRe: nf_nat not running in a netns
Ignore. The below was exactly the problem.

It was broken. netns nat rules in CentOS7.7 kernel were exactly not working due to a bug. Sigh.

To translate addresses from internal to external networks, they apply D/SNAT rules within that netns. All of these are created and the interfaces are pingable, but the nat rules aren’t being run and the untranslated addresses are ultimately seen on the physical network once packets traverse out of the containers and to the external neutron interface.
