But, in case with

hardware-ethernet 00:01:02:03:04:05;


hardware-ethernet 00:01:02:03:04:05;

in different shared-networks works properly. If I request address from
vlan21, then I receive address, if I request from vlan22, then
receive, I checked it a hour ago. With old config I can't use
fixed-address from several devices simultaneously, but now I can do it.
In any case, I will take in mind your comments about the groups, but I
don't understand what must be done for proper host declarations?

Thanks again, with best regards, Alexey Prokopchuk.
