ap_bridge_packets question

I have an AP configured to route (not bridge) traffic between all STAs connected to it.
When I ping between two STAs with ap_bridge_packets set to 1, I get duplicate responses. I guess this could be as it should due to both hostap bridging and higher level routing. But when I set ap_bridge_packets to 0, I get no responce at all. Can anyone explain this? Where is the mac address check done in the hostap driver? Does it stop packets from another STA even if it is routed by higher levels?

Sincerely yours,
