A frame that encounters an error in the address field is not counted as a
CRC error. It is rejected by the receiver as a frame that was not addressed
to this station. The reason for that is that the receiver only counts errors
in frames that were sent to it, and it has no way of knowing where in the
frame the error ocurred.
