Yes, I have captured and checked RADIUS authentication and accounting 
packets three times:
  tcpdump -n -vvv -i em1 src or dst host or and 
src or dst port 1812 or 1813

The Session-Timeout appears at the beginning of the 1st session only:
"Session Timeout Attribute (27), length: 6, Value: 10:00 min"

I have also disabled EAP session caching with the exact same outcome.

That attribute is missing in the Access Accept of the second session.

There is no "outer-tunnel" in "sites-available", even if there were one, 
I wouldn't know how to add it.

I don't know where the cache docs are and would gladly read them if you 
could direct me.
