Have a look at packet-tte.c which handles a similar problem.

Is there a way to make "protocol" portion of header_field_info.abbrev structure member different than protocol name? E.g. protocol name is "docsis", however in some corner cases it makes sense to set PROTOABBREV for some fields as "eth.dst" or "eth.src" for backwards compatibility with older Wireshark versions and to simplify packet filtering. There is a pre-commit hook which fails with the following error, so I wonder whether there is a known workaround for such a situation:

eth.dst_mac doesn't match PROTOABBREV of docsis
