  Please read the documentation and the debug output.  This entry in
LDAP says "send the Calling-Station-Id attribute in the Access-Accept".
 It is documented as doing that, and the debug log shows it's doing that.

  You can't just list things in configurations, and magically expect it
to do what you want.

  If you put the MAC into another field in LDAP, you can query the LDAP
server for that field, and see if it matches the field in the packet.
