Acct-Session-Id should be whatever the NAS sends.

Acct-Session-Time should also, AFAIK, be whatever the NAS sends. If
the NAS sends incorrect Acct-Session-Time, then the NAS is broken.

The acctstoptime field in radacct is a timestamp inserted by radius,
so if this field has the wrong value, your server clock is probably
not set to the correct time.

Acct-Unique-Session-Id is created by acct_unique module in FR. This is
probably what you mean by having a "generator", but should be
irrelevant to the problem.
