Mark all packets doesn’t necessarily mark all packets in the capture file.  It only marks all currently displayed packets, which could be any subset depending on the display filter applied.

I see. Thanks!

Of course we can mark the excluded ones and save 'unmarked packets' for this scenario, however I feel 'saving unmarked' is not intuitive for end users.

You can mark all packets, then unmark certain ones before saving.
