Agree, the packet is modified only if one of these flag is set.

Yes, despite the documentation of thus function says that used headers
should be in the first data segment of the mbuf, when it is used through
the ethdev tx_prepare() API there is no such requirement.

So yes, it looks safer to do these checks even if debug is off. They
will only be done when doing tx offload, so I guess it is ok in terms of
performance.

Maybe it is worth mentioning commit dfc6b2fd8da3 ("mbuf: remove Intel
offload checks from generic API") in the commit log?
