You have to add 'learn' option to the kernel protocol config.
Otherwise, kernel protocol is export-only.

But if you do not have some special situation here (like routes
dynamically generated by some other software), it is usually
a better idea to have static routes configured in BIRD using
static protocol and export these to the kernel instead.
