Webmin confused about network connections "on-boot", "currently active" and "actual" configuration when interfaces contain a - ( dash ) leading to network config corruption

OS type and version CentOS 7 - latest stable
Webmin version 1.994
Usermin version 1.840
Virtualmin version 7.1
Authentic theme version 19.93.1

Somehow it seems Webmin is unable to parse my “complicated” network setup. I have a couple of servers that are connected with dual interfaces. The first interface connects to the public internet, the second interface to a private network. Then there are a few servers that are not part of the private network, these are linked in via a VPN Mesh.

on the public interface there is no ip, it is linked to a bridge that holds the public ip. on this bridge there is a second interface ( vlan 110 ) that links this public interface through to the internal interface. I do the same for multiple other networks. The bridges function as the hookup points for the virtual machines i am running on my networks. This way i am able to (live)migrate hosts based on there specific load requirements without the need to modify their network configs. it looks something like this:

The bright green interfaces are all static, and as such configured using ifcfg-XX files. these interfaces work as expected, start on boot as configured and nmcli lists them correctly as can be seen below.

Eventhough all this seems to be correct, Virtualmin seems a bit confused:

All interfaces that have a - ( dash ) in their name are not recognized or listed, the options ( like on boot / or interface type vlan ) are alternating too. On the interfaces currently active these are listed, though they can not be “edited”. If i edit any of the connections that are recognized, webmin corrupts the entire network config ( multiple ifcfg files ) by placing options with empty multilined " ( double quotes ) and the files have to be re-created from scratch. what i mean with multilined:

… / /… etc

Is this a bug? or… what is going on?
