If you don't record Start packets you won't be able to detect double
(or multiple) logins by the same user. Potentially, one user can pay you
and reveal his user/pass to everybody and all of them will be able to
connect to your network as they please. If Simultaneous-Use is working
only one at the time can connect - they can still share user details but
they won't be able to connect in the same time.

There should be Interim-Update on that list as well. Freeradius processes
Start, Stop, Update, On and Off by default.

>However i need to store only the category of "Acct-Status-Type == Stop"

You have done that already:
