It is not clear to me that transmission correctly marks uTP traffic,
particularly on IPv6. grep the current sources for "TCLASS"?

It is very evident that incoming traffic needs to be re-marked at the
gateway, as a huge percentage of traffic I see at one of my sites is marked
background that shouldn't be. (or there's a bug in my script)

Inappropriately marking traffic as background has side effects on stuff
inside the gateway, particularly on wifi, as it gets tossed into the hw
background queue, which has different scheduling characteristics than best

As for dealing with incoming vs outgoing traffic, it might be possible to
use connection tracking to successfully re-mark traffic on incoming to
match the outgoing.
