I believe that is true as well, however I'm not using any SVIs on the interface
I'm looking at. In fact, the interface I'm looking at is unconfigured and shut.
I've even verified that there's no internal vlan assigned to it, so it should
definitely be using the phy mac, but it's not, hence my confusion and email =)
