Hi, it is interface where RE will receive/send traffic which is not mapped to any configured ifl (unit on physical interface).
For example LLDP will be mapped to this interface.
And you can read this KB2277.
IFL *.32767 is created when vlan-tagging is configured for an interface.
The *.32767 logical interface is created for the individual interface, the parent link, as well as all child links in the bundle.
Logical unit 32767 is created to keep track of each individual link. This is needed for receiving LACP Marker Packets as per 802.3ad specifications and receiving untagged control PDU’s on a tagged interface.
This article explains when logical interface .16386 is created on EX and QFX Series switches.
IFL *.16386 is created on 10G and 40G interfaces when an SFP module is inserted without any logical unit (IFL) configuration.
The default IFL (.16386) is added only when there are no IFLs configured on the interface.
The default IFL on the interfaces is to support VC auto-provisioning on (et-/xe-) interfaces.
