Almost never had a reason to filter traffic flowing through loopback with
exceptionally rare case.

It heavily depends on local condition and there may be lots of local traffic.

Also, I do not understand how a router can deal without delivering traffic
locally for its local IPs in many cases like running squid proxy or web/smtp
server or even routinely running ping to check if distinct uplink is still
alive.
