net: Avoid calling L2 functions on offloaded interface

Calling functions like `net_if_start_dad`, `join_mcast_nodes` or
`net_if_start_rs` lead to L2 API function calls, which is not correct
for offloaded interfaces and leads to a crash. This is especially
problematic, as they are called in the default configuration.

Avoid calling these functions while an offloaded interface is brought up
by adding extra jump label.
