Just looking at the log, it might be this:

    i40e: Make sure to be in VEB mode if SRIOV is enabled at probe
    If SRIOV is enabled we need to be in VEB mode not VEPA mode at probe.
    This fixes an NPAR bug when SRIOV is enabled in the BIOS.

  i40e bug: non physical MAC outbound frames appear as copied back
  inbound  (mirrored)

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux-lts-vivid package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Using 3.19.0-28-generic #30~14.04.1-Ubuntu with stock i40e
  driver version 2.2.2-k makes every 'non physical' MAC output
  frame appear as copied back at input, as if the switch was
  doing frame 'mirroring' (and/or hair-pinning).

  FYI same setup, with i40e upgraded to 1.2.48 from
  behaves OK, fyi also we did a port mirroring setup at
  the switch directed to a different physical port for debugging,
  and didn't observe these frames to be physically present.

  See tcpdump -P in/out and more details at
