for NODE1, Proxy is enabled. This explains relaying of messages over advertising.

There's something not matching up with the description of your
configuration however. You said that NODE1 has both Relay and GATT Proxy
states disabled, however bt_mesh_net_relay() has the following test
before printing the log message that could be seen on your console:

        if (rx->net_if == BT_MESH_NET_IF_ADV &&
            bt_mesh_relay_get() != BT_MESH_RELAY_ENABLED &&
            bt_mesh_gatt_proxy_get() != BT_MESH_GATT_PROXY_ENABLED) {

So the function should bail out at this point for any packet received
over advertising when neither Relay nor GATT Proxy is set to enabled.
Your logs show that the packet was received over net_if 0, which is
BT_MESH_NET_IF_ADV, so based on the fact that the code continued from
this point it seems you had either Relay or GATT Proxy enabled.
