  I'm not sure what that means.

  For FreeRADIUS, all attributes are just attributes.  It doesn't matter if they're "normal" ones or VSAs.  All of the attribute matching and comparison is done via standard methods.  See "man unlang".

  if you're asking whether you can match clients based on some information... the answer is "no".  Clients are matched based on IP address (or network).  See raddb/clients.conf.
