Here is KSZ8873 as initial reference:
https://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/aemDocuments/documents/OTH/ProductDocuments/DataSheets/00002348A.pdf
3.3.9 RMII INTERFACE OPERATION:
"When EN_REFCLKO_3 is high, KSZ8873RLL will output a 50 MHz in REFCLKO_3.
Register 198 bit[3] is used to select internal or external reference
clock. Internal reference clock means that the clock for the RMII of
KSZ8873RLL will be provided by the KSZ8873RLL internally and the
REFCLKI_3 pin is unconnected. For the external reference clock, the
clock will provide to KSZ8873RLL via REFCLKI_3."

KSZ9897:
http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/00002330B.pdf
4.11.2 REDUCED MEDIA INDEPENDENT INTERFACE (RMII)

"The user selects one of the two RMII clocking modes by setting the
appropriate strapping option. The clocking mode is selected separately
for ports 6 and 7.

While in RMII Normal Mode, the port will require an external 50MHz
signal to be input to TX_CLKx/REFCLKIx from an external source. This
mode is selected by strapping the appropriate pin (RXD6_1 for port 6;
RXD7_1 for port 7) high during reset.

While in RMII Clock Mode, the port will output a 50MHz clock on
RX_CLKx/REFCLKOx, which is derived from the 25MHz crystal or oscillator
attached to the XI clock input. The TX_CLKx/REFCLKIx input is unused in
this mode. This mode is selected by strapping the appropriate pin
(RXD6_1 for port 6; RXD7_1 for port 7) low during reset.
"

Information about corresponding bits I linked in previous email.

I do not see much differences.

Oleksij
