Yes, the l3-agent is up and running. I see these rules when executing
the same test in juno but not in kilo. FYI, it's a all-in-one devstack

There are no errors in the logs.
After digging a bit more, we have seen that setting the config value
of enable_isolated_metadata to True (default: False) in dhcp_agent.ini
solves the problem in our scenario.
However, this change in configuration was not necessary before (our
tests passed in juno for that matter with that setting to False). So
we were wondering if there has been a change in how the metadata
service is accessed in such scenarios, a new issue because of the l3
agent refactoring or any other problem in our setup we haven't
