Seamless loop does also not work with midi tracks.
Create a midi track/region and fill in some notes.
Loop the region and enable seamless loop.
After one loop the sound goes to silence.

Another find: The loop goes only to silence when 'Play loop is a transport mode' is activated in the preferences.

I can confirm that. Yours problem is about "Play Loop is a transport mode" exactly, output goes completely silent after the first loop.
Another issue with seamless looping and midi is without that option (Only seamless looping enabled), when Ardour are dropping a few first midi notes (or seconds of midi track) after first loop, again and again.
That's really annoying.
