The dialog from Statistics -> Capture File Properties has a "Dropped packets" column but it always seems to be "unknown" for me.

yes right. Even i see the same. I think it's per interface. This is mentioned in each packet, so this should be displayed on each packet i guess

if it should be anywhere at all, it should be in the frame layer of the dissection tree (middle pane). Some EPB options are shown there if present in the file.
