You are right. Enum values for bgp_origin and ra_preference are not
handled properly. For 1.6.3 and older, bgp_origin is essentially an
integer attribute, using values 0, 1, and 2.

For 2.0.0, we have some hack that allows to use ORIGIN_* constants to set
the attribute, but for testing it is returns numbers instead of enum

I think we should fix it properly for 2.0.x and document the old behavior
for 1.6.x as there are probably users that use the integer workaround
and proper fix would break that setting.
