Is there a filter to display only broadcasts, not just 255 destinations but all broadcast of any type?

Thank you

The display filter can be complex depending on your network because IPv6 uses multicast. Mis-configured static address can create problems too.

Hello Pauli

Broadcast messages happen on Layer 2 or Layer 3. Try this Wireshark display filter for Layer 2 broadcasts (which includes IP and other protocols, like ARP:

eth.dst.ig == 1

To focus on IP broadcast messages you might try

eth.dst.ig == 1 and ip

Good luck!
