You don't state which table type you used in your example, but I
infer it must not be the tree type. That's the only type that will
accept masks. The npfctl(8) man page does note this limitation where
table entries are discussed.
Having said that, I agree with you it's counterintuitive for a tool
to output a value which it then cannot ingest in the same form. I do
see an additional man page where this could be explicitly mentioned,
so I'll address that now.
