Yet when I expand "${client:nastype}" I only get a value for clients defined in the clients file.  SQL clients are always blank.

  The "client:nastype" expansion grabs the "nastype" field from the
*config* files.  For SQL... there is no client config file.

  Sure.  Send a patch.  See src/main/mainconfig.c, function xlat_client().
