I remember looking at (I think) the packet drop stats a while back.
Two machines on the same LAN were reporting rather different values.
Basically 0 v quite a few.

It turned out that passing the packets to dhcp was deemed enough
to stop them being reported as 'dropped'.
And I think that version of dhcp fed every packed into its BPF? filter.
(I never did decide whether that caused every skb to be duplicated.)
