No, it's not requesting a specific IP address.

I'll send the details to the bugs email address.

Kind regards,

Have a look in the DHCP packets to see if the client is requesting the
address.  That's my only guess for why the behaviour is different than
I expect and observe here.

So, might be a bug.  Send the details to dhcp-bugs at isc.org to open a
ticket so we don't forget.
