That's not an indication of the nas suppoting Accounting Interim-Update.

However, since even chillispot and openvpn supports Accounting
Interim-Update, I don't see why whatever-NAS-you-re-using wouldn't
support it. It would be just silly :P

Probably nothing.

Try adding reply item "Acct-Interim-Interval := 300" to a test user
(in radreply table, if you're using database backend), login, do stuff
that uses bandwidth for 6 minutes or so, and check:
- whether the NAS sends acct interim update (easiest if you can run FR
in debug mode)
- whether the acct entry is updated
- whether dialup admin correctly displays the updated acct record
