I have found another critical bug with evpn and frr 7.5.
It seem that mac, mac-ip route are lost when frr daemon is restarted
and they never come back until the vm is stop/start.

(Seem to be related to their new code for evpn multi-homing).

It don't seem to fixed in frr 8.0 or master branch.
I had fixed another bug last week, seem to be related too.

So, I think until it's fixed, we should rollback to frr 7.4.

could we make a fake 7.5 package with 7.4 version ? (to not be override
by debian official package ?)

we have done it once with "7.2-2+pve~really7.1+stable1"

BTW, we need to be carefull with package versioning naming, because the
current  7.5.1-1+pve , don't have the priority vs the debian package.
