I don't have the exact details (it's done by my company's product), but it's important to know that while every client with a host declaration is "known", not every "known" client necessarily has a host declaration.

Hosts added via omapi will appear in the leases file as a "host" entry 
pretty similar to adding them directly to dhcpd.conf:

host mac7cb21bxxxxxxip100064021077 {
   hardware ethernet 7c:b2:1b:xx:xx:xx;
