My manpage has:
> The -r flag explicitly releases the current lease, and once the
> lease has been released, the client exits.
> If the client is killed by a signal (for example at shutdown or
> reboot) it won't execute the dhclient-script (8) at exit. However
> if you shut the client down gracefully with -r or -x it will
> execute dhclient-script (8) at shutdown with the specific reason for
> calling the script set.
