That was changed in #11387 to prevent the field from being set on interfaces which don't have MAC addresses.
In your case, it probably was applying it to the parent, but that isn't always desirable as it could be ambiguous if there are multiple virtual types on the same parent with conflicting settings.
Might be better to assign the parent and enable it without adding any IP addresses, and change the MAC there. In the meantime we can reconsider hiding the field in cases like this were it does work, but it may need some more thought about preventing conflicts.
Changing the type to regression since this was working before but now stopped. And updating the subject and other fields.
