I do not think you can change it without modifying the system implementations.
ps：This is not a problem about mininet.
Recommendations for Transport-Protocol Port Randomization
The IP address and
port number of the client are normally left unspecified by the client
application and thus are chosen automatically by the client
networking stack. Ports chosen automatically by the networking stack
are known as ephemeral ports [Stevens
While the server IP address, the well-known port, and the client IP
address may be known by an attacker, the ephemeral port of the client
is usually unknown and must be guessed.
