Your first part about the fact that it's the port private database is
true, the fact that it is not programmed into the HW actually depends on
what the switch is capable of doing. With mv88e6xxx you have per-port
VLAN filtering controls, but other switches that do not have that
capability need to program VID == 0 into the HW to continue maintaining
VLAN filtering on a non bridged port while a bridge has enslaved other
ports of the switch.

AFAICT, mv88e6xx is the only driver that attempts to catch vid == 0 and
return something to the upper layers about it.
