From the FWSM config guide


An EtherType ACE controls any EtherType identified by a 16-bit hexadecimal number.

EtherType access lists support Ethernet V2 frames.

802.3-formatted frames are not handled by the access list because they use a length field as opposed to a type field.

BPDUs, which are handled by the access list, are the only exception: they are SNAP-encapsulated, and the FWSM is designed to specifically handle BPDUs. "
