Troubleshooting packet loss

New to all of this and having some fun being able to setup and configure my own router!

Looking for some input on dropped packets that I'm seeing on eth0. This is my LAN interface, using a RTL8125B PCI card. Packets are dropped every second or so. It's fairly small (~0.09%), but I'm not seeing any packet loss on my DS-LITE tunnel, nor my WAN interface. Shouldn't this technically be 0% as well? Is there a way I can figure out what's being dropped, or is this not of any concern?

Solved with help from Reddit...

For anyone curious, it's STP frames from my switches getting dropped on my OpenWRT LAN interface.
