Regular expressions on module 'files' (possible bug?)

On 'users' file I have this entry;

b2      User-Password := "b2", Calling-Station-ID =~ "(00:10:B5:7A:13:BD)", Expiration := "28 Feb 2009 23:00:00"

this entry should match only if Calling-Station-Id equals to "00:10:B5:7A:13:BD".
on my case, it matches always, no matter what I send as Calling-Station-ID.
if I dont set Calling-Station-Id on access request, then 'files' module returns with noop, which is correct.

this is a snippet of debug output,
rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host port 1538, id=67, length=68
         User-Name = "b2"
         User-Password = "b2"
         NAS-Port = 212
         NAS-IP-Address =
         Calling-Station-Id = "asdfasdfadsf"
+- entering group authorize {...}
++[preprocess] returns ok
++[chap] returns noop
++[mschap] returns noop
[suffix] No '@' in User-Name = "b2", looking up realm NULL
[suffix] No such realm "NULL"
++[suffix] returns noop
[eap] No EAP-Message, not doing EAP
++[eap] returns noop
++[unix] returns notfound
[files]         expand: %{Calling-Station-Id} -> asdfasdfadsf
[files] users: Matched entry b2 at line 1
++[files] returns ok
[expiration] Checking Expiration time: '28 Feb 2009 23:00:00'
++[expiration] returns ok
++[logintime] returns noop

I am testing this on latest version taken from git repositories, but I tried it also on older versions down to 2.1.1, they behave the same.
on version 2.0.5 I get correct behavior.
