Is it possible to instruct the kernel to use the dest-mask instead of
just letting it assume /32 ?

What do you want exactly?

ip route list match

is equivalent to

ip route list match

as you have specified that only the highmost 8 bits are relevant in the address.

To change your routing use "ip route add/del".

To include the source address in your routing decisions see "ip rule add/remove" and the Linux Advanced Routing howto.
