This is following the logic defined in of_mdiobus_register_phy().
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/drivers/net/mdio/of_mdio.c#L107

	mii_ts = of_find_mii_timestamper(child);
	if (IS_ERR(mii_ts))
		return PTR_ERR(mii_ts);

I think the logic above is correct because this function returns only if
of_find_mii_timestamper() returns error. On NULL return, it proceeds further.

As the comment says, I think PHY drivers which got invoked before calling
of_mdiobus_register_phy() may have defined phy->mii_ts.
