Hmm, I don’t think you can alter Windows native bridge behavior, however you can try an alternative network bridging approach suggested here https://www.ntkernel.com/bridging-networks-with-windows-packet-filter/. It should work for your setup.

If your task is connecting RNDIS USB device to laptop network then you can also use NAT approach instead bridge. I have had such experience in the past with USB connected NetTalk DUO device.

And the last, you can try to play around OID_GEN_CURRENT_PACKET_FILTER by setting it directly for underlying USB RNDIS miniport. WinpkFilter driver allows you to bind above and below Windows native Ethernet Bridge, so you can bind to USB RNDIS miniport directly even with enabled bridging. And then try try set different filter for USB RNDIS by using CNdisApi:SetHwPacketFilter. Al least you can find out if setting different packet filter can help here.
