That's the way it is.

Short answer: unless your NAS sends Event-Timestamp, then no.

Long answer:
When a NAS sends Event-Timestamp, freeradius will use that as packet
timestamp. You should get the same timestamp no matter how many tiimes
the request is proxied. See

When a NAS does NOT send Event-Timestamp, the only way to guess when
the packet was first received is by using the current timestamp and
Acct-Delay-Time. Current approach taken by the default sql queries
(see sql/mysql/dialup.conf for example) is to record both attributes
in different columns. If you don't like this you can change the query.
