I did test, but only using an action=NORMAL bridge.  I don't know if the
general case for conntracking SCTP works.

A quick test on my system does display similar issues, and it's likely
something in kernel.  I see that a +inv+trk rule is matching.  I'll dig
a bit deeper, but there's probably a missing state interpretation.
