Replying to myself for posterity ...
As so often seems to be the case, my difficulties were due to that
recurring issue, "You're doing it wrong."
TL;DR - Setting different MTUs on different ports of an OVS bridge
doesn't work as expected, so using separate tagged ports on the host OS
isn't the way to go.
Instead, create VLAN netdevs on top of the trunked OVS port (treating
it as if it were a physical interface or bond). For example:
