It will do that if the client makes requests with different
Client-IDs. The Client-ID is the primary key in the database and the
MAC address is only used if no Client-ID is provided. So if the
client changes it's Client-ID, or changes between providing and not
providing one, then to the server is is a different client and will
get a different address.
