  Yes.  Although the AP does not necessarily "know" the information.
If it's running a DHCP server, it knows.  Otherwise, it would have to
sniff DHCP traffic, and compare MACs from EAP to those in DHCP.

  Most AP vendors haven't written the code to do DHCP sniffing,
so... no IP's in RADIUS accounting packets.
