Right.

If you view the information at a port as just a table of the allowed
combinations of ingress nickname and tree at that port, then there are
six entries for RBv and the trees. But these six entries could be one
each at six different ports or all at one port or anything in between
depending on the topology and tree structures. Most likely, if you
have many ports on a TRILL switch, most of them would have no RPFC
entries for RBv ingress in this case.

Thanks,
Donald
