Do you have, by chance, "IP-Forwarding" enabled (YaST, Network config)?
"use_tempaddr=2" is ignored when forwarding is enabled.

No. This is a desktop system that's not configured as a router.

I'm not saying that to call you stupid or ignorant, it's just the
fact that more and more software messes with config entries out of
their assumed scope.
I'm checking for that with these two commands:
sysctl -a --pattern 'forward'
sysctl -a --pattern 'use_tempaddr'
