Based on what I’ve seen, I think you might be right about the NIC detecting a fault due to a half connected state. I forced the interface up and put it in “promiscuous” mode, then ran tcp dump. Unfortunately, it reported back with no packets captured ☹

I've dealt with this before although I don't really understand it technically. Some sort of layer1-ish protocol.. the only way I can explain it is something like Cisco's UDLD.. the NIC detects a fault in the circuit due to a half connected state and shuts down the laser/LED for safety reasons.
You might find some obscure low-level setting for the NIC to force it into a special monitor mode similar to how wifi monitor mode works.
What happens if you force the interface up and run tcpdump ?
