No, I don't have any remapping rules that would be relevant here.
Why would the frames need to be necessarily untagged for a VLAN-unaware
bridge, why is it a problem if they aren't?

bool br_allowed_ingress(const struct net_bridge *br,
			struct net_bridge_vlan_group *vg, struct sk_buff *skb,
			u16 *vid, u8 *state)
	/* If VLAN filtering is disabled on the bridge, all packets are
	 * permitted.
	if (!br_opt_get(br, BROPT_VLAN_ENABLED)) {
		BR_INPUT_SKB_CB(skb)->vlan_filtered = false;
		return true;

	return __allowed_ingress(br, vg, skb, vid, state);

If I have a VLAN on a bridged switch port where the bridge is not
filtering, I have an 8021q upper of the bridge with that VLAN ID.

If by "separation" you mean "limiting the forwarding domain", the switch
keeps the same VLAN associated with the frame internally, regardless of
whether it's egress-tagged or not.

I need to take some time to understand what's going on there.
