and agr1 runs as expected.

When I compare agr0 and agr1, I note that agr0 doesn't indicate IPv4 and IPv6 capabilities. Why ? If I understand, agr0 has to indicate these capabilities to work as expected.

I assume that by "indicate IPv5 and IPv6 capabilities" you are referring to the varions hardware-offload flags listed above. These are totally optional, and if hardware (or, in your case pseudo-hardware tap!) does not provide these capabilities, they are provided in software. These flags are documented in a bit more detail in the ifconfig(8) man page (but you need to search for the flag names in lower-case!)
