We hit the same problem.

No. Juniper told us this is a hardware limitation. tcp-flags will
never be supported on EX4200 (don't know for EX8200).

I don't have any knowledge in switch design, but I don't understand
why pattern-matching some bits in TCP headers is difficult on egress.

Also note that syslog on egress firewall filters is also not possible.
