I don't use the DHCP functionality in FreeRADIUS at all, but I can
imagine that it is useful to let a FreeRADIUS policy decide whether to
serve the request locally or to relay it.  This is hard to do without an
internal relay agent.

Much like you can do both proxy and local RADIUS authentication on the
same server.  You don't really want to have an external RADIUS proxy...
