unknow interface type in gui when using vlan and bond with bridge

I'm using same configuration in proxmox docs here https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Network_Configuration

Use VLAN 5 with bond0 for the Proxmox VE management IP with traditional Linux bridge
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eno1 inet manual

iface eno2 inet manual

auto bond0
iface bond0 inet manual
bond-slaves eno1 eno2
bond-miimon 100
bond-mode 802.3ad
bond-xmit-hash-policy layer2+3

iface bond0.5 inet manual

auto vmbr0v5
iface vmbr0v5 inet static
bridge-ports bond0.5
bridge-stp off
bridge-fd 0

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet manual
bridge-ports bond0
bridge-stp off
bridge-fd 0

my config is very similar to this except vlan is 300 and name of interfaces for bond are eno6 and ens1f1, it's working but in proxmox gui I have this result

is not a huge problem, but I cannot press the edit button on unknow types, so I cannot fast change the ip. Am I doing something wrong?
It's just a wild guess, but I think the type is determined from the name.
I would try to rename vmbr0.5 to vmbr5 in /etc/network/interfaces and reload with ifreload -a
