Disable discovery interface for the desired interface,
'ip neighbor discovery 'ip neighbor discovery set iface_name discover=no'.

Hi there, What is reason for the function of Mikrotik tracking its neighbours?

Just curious.

so you see what router "sees" around it, like other routers. and it is for dude also, imo

and, if router has no configuration then yo can access "see" it and access via mac

airstream,
I think it is more easier to manage networks using neighbor discovery protocol.
you can obtain addresses(MAC-address) of neighboring devices and discover the current version of those devices.
