There's no direct way to modify the MAC-learning table.

I don't know a reason why the flow that you've showed us would cause
such big problems.  The command does omit the MAC address, but that
would only cause an error from ovs-ofctl, so I guess that the actual
command included the MAC.

Maybe you should show us more of your flow table.
