Answer

  • As the physical interfaces are in promiscuous mode, nodes of SG will receive everything that the switch forwards, and drop anything that's not for SG.
  • There are frames bigger than 1500 bytes on the VLANs which SG is listening to. SG will drop those frames without any errors if they weren't too big. If the frames are too big, they will trigger framing errors.
  • If there is no functional impact noted, ignore those frame drop errors.
