Below bind will be success since the check inside udp_bind will not match IPv4 any and IPv6 Any type, please check once
IP_GET_TYPE(&ipcb->local_ip) will be 0 and IP_GET_TYPE(ipaddr) is 46
if ((ipcb->local_port == port) &&
              (IP_GET_TYPE(&ipcb->local_ip) == IP_GET_TYPE(ipaddr)) &&
              /* IP address matches or any IP used? */
              (ip_addr_cmp(&ipcb->local_ip, ipaddr) ||
              ip_addr_isany(ipaddr) ||
              ip_addr_isany(&ipcb->local_ip))) {
            /* other PCB already binds to this local IP and port */
                        ("udp_bind: local port %"U16_F" already bound by another pcb\n", port));
            return ERR_USE;
