fixed-address lease structures don't reside permanently in memory - they
are formed when a client that would get such a lease sends a packet, and
destroyed after the transmission of a response is complete.

OMAPI cannot be used to query what does not exist.

DHCP 3.1.0 'reserved' leases, if they make it into the final cut
(and I have no reason to believe they won't), on the other hand
exist permanently, identically to any dynamic lease.
