    Hmm, that would be really strange behaviour. Definitely buggy. The
    question is if it is Avahi that is buggy, or the FreeBSD kernel.

Oh, it's definitely the FreeBSD behavior that's causing the problem. I'm
not sure if it's buggy, or simply broken-as-designed. There's precious
little documentation on PF_ROUTE.
