The info column is filled by the protocol dissector that is handed (part of) the packet it is to dissect. Since after the VLAN dissector there's no other dissector handling the packet data (there's non registered for the ethertype) the info column is left as it was filled in by the VLAN dissector.

What you could do is create a plugin dissector (in Lua would be the easiest, I assume) that registers for your dummy ethertype, which does nothing more than fill the info column with the remaining packet data.
