I noticed this with the ndis driver also. I searched the code and
found that this is coming from the null_update_mcast function in

To get rid of this notification will require updating the iwi and ndis
drivers to seperate multicast update and promisc update into seperate

ic->ic_update_mcast = null_update_mcast;
ic->ic_update_promisc = null_update_promisc;
 * Synchronize flag bit state in the parent ifnet structure
 * according to the state of all vap ifnet's.  This is used,
 * for example, to handle IFF_PROMISC and IFF_ALLMULTI.
ieee80211_syncifflag_locked(struct ieee80211com *ic, int flag)

This is to allow  the ieee80211_syncifflag_locked function to update
the parent ifnet structure.

Search the other wireless drivers (i.e ath) on how the conversion was made.
