You should ask Mikrotik.

Some NAS (like dd-wrt, and probably all wireless access point with
IEEE802.1x authentication) only use radius for authentication. They
don't use radius for accounting, thus they never send accounting
packets. Other NAS (like chillispot, which can run on top of dd-wrt to
provide captive portal) use radius for accounting as well.
