I assume that the OP has updated the radius dictionary file in
Wireshark if any changes were made to the FreeRadius dictionary?

It's under the "radius" directory under the main install of Wireshark
that needs to have the exact same changes you made (if you made any
changes to your FreeRadius dictionary files) to be made in Wireshark.
Plus it may depend on the version of Wireshark you're running, if it's
old it is sure to be out of date.

That would determine if Wireshark correctly decodes the values or not.
