I know the question has come up before, but will pose it again for an up-to-date definitive answer/discussion.

Is CTF disabled by the use of other router settings (e.g. wireless MAC filter, QOS) or any other router settings? And if it is, is there any common scenario where it would be worth having CTF turned off for the value of those other settings?

Judging by the code in the Tools Sysinfo page, CTF can be disabled due to:
  • QoS
  • IPTraffic
  • Repeater mode
  • USB Modem
  • User preference (NAT Acceleration)
