Here is the respons you will get from Cisco, on their Route Processor documentation.

Q. Are routing protocols supported on the 10/100/1000BASE-T management interface?

I've honstly never tried really configuring one as an additional port, so I don't have any real first have experience, as far as that goes with the ASRs.

You cannot use the interface like the other ports. It is restricted to the management VRF and will not forward traffic.
