Lets say for simplicity that I do not use any vlan config inside my server - one lpar group use hea physical port1, another group hea physical port2. Physical port1 configured as vlan1 on external switch, physical port2 as vlan2.
What is the common practice - should I isolate my vios partitions and assign those to vlan3 for example ?

As you should not be logged on to you VIOS much and not generating much network traffic it does not make a lot of difference.
Do what you like or is less work.
