Can interfaces on S series switches where the BPDU function is not enabled send BPDUs

To configure S series (except the S1700) and E series switches to transparently transmit BPDUs, perform the following operations:
1. Configure interface-based Layer 2 protocol transparent transmission.
(1) Run the l2protocol-tunnel group-mac command in the system view to replace the multicast destination MAC address of Layer 2 protocol packets with a specified multicast MAC address.
(2) Run the port default vlan command on the inbound and outbound interfaces to transparently transmit untagged BPDUs.
(3) Run the l2protocol-tunnel { all | protocol-type } enable command on the inbound and outbound interfaces to enable interface-based Layer 2 protocol transparent transmission.
2. Configure VLAN-based Layer 2 protocol transparent transmission.
(1) Run the l2protocol-tunnel group-mac command in the system view to replace the multicast destination MAC address of Layer 2 protocol packets with a specified multicast MAC address.
(2) Run the port link-type hybrid and port hybrid tagged vlan commands on the inbound and outbound interfaces to transparently transmit tagged BPDUs.
(3) Run the l2protocol-tunnel { all | protocol-type } vlan command on the inbound and outbound interfaces to enable VLAN-based Layer 2 protocol transparent transmission.
