Can you post "lspci -vt" and "lspci -v" output?
It will tell us alot more about the heirarchy and address space routing.

No. MMIO routing is handling by MMIO "window" register in the bridge.

While it's called a "switch" because it can route MMIO transactions
from one downstream PCI-e link to any other.

"lspci -vt" will show what is visible in PCI Config space.

"lspci -v" will tell us how the bridge is configured.
