Did you look at the debugging tips at the bottom of the page?

It's not a hardware feature.  It's software configured on the NIC
device.  As I mentioned before, there's more information in the
ovs-vsctl man page.  It tends to work better than ingress policing but
you should check that that's at least loaded and running correctly
first since it's easier to configure.
