What seems to be causing this is:

option option-176 code 176 = text;
option avaya-call-server code 176 = text;
host thing1 {
  option option-176 "MCIPADD=blah,blah.blah";
host thing2 {
  option avaya-call-server "MCIPADD=foo,bar,frobozz";

So, is it a feature or a bug that everything has to use the
same name for options?

If you are wondering, why this would happen it is because
our dhcpd config is auto-built from a variety of sources.
