[ovs-discuss] OVS not forwarding traffic for debian 10 kvm

I've moved some VMs from Fedora 30 hosts to one running Debian Buster
(virsh dumpxml / define).
The VMs boot fine but their network is not working correctly. I am not sure
if their packaged version has different default settings that I am now

Even the VMs on the same bridge do not reach each other:

root at vm2021 ~ # ovs-vsctl show
    Bridge "ovsbr39"
        Port "ovsbr39"
            Interface "ovsbr39"
                type: internal
        Port "bond0.39"
            Interface "bond0.39"
    Bridge "ovsbr40"
        Port "ovsbr40"
            Interface "ovsbr40"
                type: internal
        Port "vnet0"
            tag: 388
            Interface "vnet0"
        Port "vnet1"
            tag: 388
            Interface "vnet1"
        Port "bond0.40"
            Interface "bond0.40"
    ovs_version: "2.10.1"

For example, I can see ARP flow out of the VM -> VLAN -> Bridge -> Bond
VLAN (QinQ) -> HW-Switch.
The VM never receives a reply.

I am running the same setup on FC30 and it works fine, I tried to get the
same working with debian but I failed.

Any hints whats wrong here?
I've browsed all logs I found so far but there are no errors.

Thank you.

Kind regards
