  It's intentional.  It's a perfectly valid use of certificate chains.

  The idea is that you have one CA for your organization, and (perhaps)
multiple RADIUS servers.  Each server has it's own identity, and can
issue it's own client certs for EAP-TLS.  But client certs will work
across multiple servers, because the servers are signed by the same CA.
