Its efforts in reproducing high-metric RTPROT_KERNEL routes with low-metric RTPROT_STATIC ones are effectively hiding the kernel issue outside of CeroWrt runtime.

The matter is, IPv4 default route comes flagged as either "static" or "boot" (both cases are displayed without "proto" column by /sbin/ip route). This is properly picked up. IPv6 default route comes flagged as "kernel"..
