I see what might have confused you. The failover trunk. This isn't actually an aggregation, no trunk is actually in use at both ends. Instead, the trunk() pseudo-NIC used to transition one IP address between two interfaces, such as in the man page example where a workstation is configured with wired and wireless interfaces that share the same IP address, and switch back and forth on the same local network.

Your wired/wireless connections are not on a single network, so this mechanism cannot be used.
