Clearing the mac-address would result in the switch trying to learn the mac-addresses again on each port meaning even if it receives a unicast packet on a port, it would be flooded to all other ports which are part of the vlan

Clearing the ARP entries would result in ARP queries (again broadcast) to be sent to get the IP-tp MAC resolution
