Keepalive packets are not a significant traffic.

SoftEther VPN is a layer 2 VPN protocol.
Many OS services send broadcast packets to probes a layer 2 network.
It is not easy to stop whole of this behavior.

When you stop the Windows sharing protocol of a virtual network adapter, the problem may be reduced.
