[neutron][ironic][nova][routed_network] what's normal workflow when ironic host added to nova from neutron?

Actually I know only the "ironicless" usecases of routed provider networks.
As I know neutron has the hostname from the agent (even from config or if
not defined from socket.gethostname()).
For a similar feature (which uses placement guaranteed minimum bandwidth)
there was a change that come from a
bug with perhaps Ironic usecases:
the bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/neutron/+bug/1853840

The solution was to introduce a new config option
called resource_provider_hypervisors
Without having experience with ironic based on your description your
problem with routed provider nets is
similar and the config option should be used to make segments plugin use
that for resource provider / host aggregate creation.
