Access-Request / Mandatory Attributes

I find that FreeRadius server allows access even without either of the
mandatory attributes i.e. NAS-Identifier or NAS-IP-Address in the
Access Request packet.

Is this a deviation from RFC 2865 ?

" .....An Access-Request SHOULD contain a User-Name attribute.  It
MUST contain either a NAS-IP-Address attribute or a NAS-Identifier
attribute (or both)."

Can someone clarify this please?

Many thanks,
