That's completely ignored in ioctl-case as well. See dev_ioctl() in
kernel sources:

| colon = strchr(ifr->ifr_name, ':');
| if (colon)
|         *colon = 0;

If you pass 'group 0' to link show command, ioctl code path is taken. It
allows (and drops) arbitrary input after the colon (as long as the total
name doesn't exceed 15 characters).
