I cannot speak to iperf, but netperf doesn't manipulate 
IP_MTU_DISCOVERY.  It will set IP_RECVERR for a UDP_STREAM test, and 
will by default set SO_DONTROUTE (*) for UDP_STREAM but no IP_MTU_DISCOVERY.

happy benchmarking,

* QA engineers doing link up/down testing with UDP_STREAM on test 
systems not air-gapped from the production networks are dangerous
