Maybe I misunderstood? I understood the problem so that DHCPOFFER gives
the correct values and DHCPINFORM gives wrong values.

If that is correct, my proposal will solve the problem. DHCPOFFER taking
values from the options in the subnet declaration (or range) and the
DHCPINFORM takes the values from the general options. So matching
DHCPINFORM to the range its address belongs to and using those values
should work.
