  That's possible.

  When you say "FreeRADIUS remembers the user with associated MAC", what that means is "write the username and MAC to a database".

  Then, when FreeRADIUS receives a DHCP request with that MAC, it can use that to look up the user.  And then apply the pool information.

  Which database do you want to use?  FreeRADIUS doesn't have an in-memory database, so you will need to use something like SQL or Redis.
