dhclient does not log any complaints about those packets?
Some NICs pass the FCS to the host in promiscuous mode, but not
otherwise. Their drivers neither apply M_HASFCS nor trim the ethernet
checksum from the input mbufs when the NIC is in promiscuous. bridge(4)
may conceal or compound the defect in those input mbufs.
