You can't do only MAC auth with EAP on wireless.

The closest you can get is probably to have a well-known shared
username/password for those devices. But why?

Or do a backwards step and spin up a separate PSK SSID.

You can add local users in FreeRADIUS without having to auth
against AD if you need to do that.
