The way I understand the hardware bug, the device is defective, as you
said, the device sends PTM messages when "busmastering" is disabled.

My suggestion is that adding this quirk would be a last resort kind of
thing. There are users/customers that depend on the increased time
synchronization accuracy that PTM provides.

Makes total sense, from my side.
