I do understand that most probably -- even though it was not
stated explicitly -- dnsmasq is receiving its how hosts' DHCP request
sent by the client running on eth0.3.

This does not really change my reading of the situation: if dnsmasq
receives this request, it is because eth0.3 is in the list of
interfaces which dnsmasq is actually listening to, even though it is
not in the list of interfaces it *should* be listening to. Hence my
