Sorry, that won't work.  :(

Class matching is unfortunately done in a stage of processing
prior to host record lookups (when the known bit is conditionally
set if a host record is found).

Can you describe more abstractly the input/output or consequence
you are trying for?  I am going to guess that you want the class
record to carry some information for the group of host records?

In this case, you can simply use a group {} statement surrounding
the host records so that they all inherit the same configuration

  group {
    option domain-name "";
    option domain-search "", "";

    host a {
      hardware ethernet 00:1e:69:a9:c6:05;
    host b ...
