No words of wisdom, but...

Are you doing this to a previously-captured binary log file, being
read back with -r, or to a binary log file at the moment of its capture?

(hmm.. Guess it wouldn't make any difference..)

man snort:

-B address-conversion-mask

Convert  all  IP  addresses  in  home-net to addresses specified by
address-conversion-mask.  Used to  obfuscate  IP  addresses  within
binary  logs.  Specify home-net with the '-h' switch.  Note this is
not the same as $HOME_NET.

Seems like it might be some part of:

-h -B

or somesuch on the command line?

As you might guess, I haven't tried it myself :-/
