I'm not sure what you mean by that.

It says the NAMES are never exchanged. NAMES. Not ATTRIBUTES.

Use attributes that are *supposed* to go into a RADIUS packet. It has
nothing to do with MySQL. The attributes can come from anywhere.
You can't simply invent attribute numbers. They are assigned via a
controlled process. The numbers you used "78" and "79" are *already*
assigned to different attributes.
You need to read the documentation for the PPOE server to see which
attributes it understands. There's also a "dictionary.roaringpenguin"
file distributed with FreeRADIUS. It defines attributes for the RP
PPPoE server, for upload and download rate limiting.
