match u16 0x1a00 0xfff0

Mask is first applied to the value in the packet, then it's tested against your (0x1a00) value
Can you please explain this further?

You are saying that its ORed with the value? Or is it ANDed? Or maybe XORed? What operation are they applying to the value? Working from what I have done with other bit masking operations, I am assuming that the mask is ANDed with the value in the packet. Then I would assume you OR the check with the resulting value. But I am not sure.

I would expect the mask to be applied to the value. It doesn't make sense to apply it to the check, because then you would simply match the highest possible value of the check+mask.
