This is absolutely right, and this is added into the guide about how to enable DCF. ;-)

And one important thing is that : VF with DCF capability is only bound to ice/kernel
driver, so we can't add it into the generic iavf VF PMD, since it works on i40e/ice etc.
And the main task about DCF is flow control, the AdminQ is implemented in ice PF PMD, and
it just uses these AdminQ API to runs on VF hardware, not ice PF hardware.
