Maybe, I am missing something so you might help. The learning attribute - in my case - it is like all other attributes: a port attribute (as you said, port settings that the switch provides per port). 
So, what I was saying is "why the user shall go through a bridge to configure the learning attribute"? From my perspective, it is as any other attribute and as such configurable on the port.
