So, the DISCOVER is not matching any of your classes.  Define another pool to issue
leases from that doesn't match any class:
      pool {
         deny members of "RegionX-RGMGMT-CPE-MODELx";
         deny members of "RegionX-BOOT-CPE-MODELx";
         deny members of "RegionX-INET";

         deny dynamic bootp clients;
         range 192.168.xxx.2 192.168.xxx.15;

This should issue a lease and trigger your 'on commit' log statement.
