The version you are using does not have bloom filter support.

It should be ignoring the parameter and not generating any bloom filter
streams, when writing.

hive --orcfiledump (in later versions) will print the BLOOM_FILTER as a
column next to the row index streams.

Everything else you are doing is appropriate, however be aware that the
bloom filter index (& row-index) is consulted only *after* a mapper starts

So it might still spin up a mapper, but it might exit immediately, which
plays well into Tez container reuse for very busy clusters - in fact, it
might be faster in a busy cluster than a completely idle one.

The sorted[1] min-max indicators suggested by Prasanth however are
actually rolled up to the split-level & can be used to prune splits before
being scheduled.
