If I remember correctly BridgeDB tries (in a best-effort manner) to
give users bridges that are listening on port 443. Obfuscated bridges
that bind on 443 are not very common (because of #7875) so I guess
that not many obfuscated bridges on 443 are given out.

In any case, I don't think that a user can explicitly ask BridgeDB for
a bridge on a specific port, but this might be a useful feature
request (especially if this "filtering based on TCP port" tactic
