Yes, The MAC entry is always learned by hardware, user also can add it by using "bridge fdb add".

If the MAC entry is learned by hardware, it's marked as ageable. When setting the PSFP filter on this stream, it needs to be set to static. For example, if the MAC table entry is not set to static, when link is down for a period of time, the MAC entry will be forgotten, and SFID information will be lost.
After disable PSFP filter on the stream, there is no need to keep the MAC entry static, setting the type back to ageable can cope with network topology changes.
