No.  It IS set on the LAN interface, but if I am reading the option
correct that is to force a static assignment by netifd even if no link
is detected (make sense for LAN I think).

Tried it anyway by forcing it to 0 on the LAN config (was there by
default install), and also added it to the WAN interface (under DHCP).
No change in handling :(  Since ethtool doesn't even notice the link
change state I think it might be a network driver issue.
