Yes, but only if the client requests them.

If the client makes multiple requests using DIFFERENT client IDs then 
the server will treat the requests as being from different clients - 
thus each request will get a different ID.

If you want them to be from different pools then you will need to 
find some way putting the associating the different requests with 
different classes. For example, you might use client-ids of the form 
"pvt-<unique bit>" and "pub-<unique bit>" and then match on the first 
three bytes of the client-id.

What the client does with the address it gets is entirely down to the client.
