Filters after an interface argument only affect the most preceding interface. From the dumpcap man page:

-f <capture filter=""> Set the capture filter expression.

The entire filter expression must be specified as a single argument (which means that if it contains spaces, it must be quoted).

This option can occur multiple times. If used before the first occurrence of the -i option, it sets the default capture filter expression. If used after an -i option, it sets the capture filter expression for the interface specified by the last -i option occurring before this option. If the capture filter expression is not set specifically, the default capture filter expression is used if provided.
