Which exact model of AP?  Also, are you running with 3.7.x firmware and 
configured with the 5.x controller?

I had this working with the 1st gen Unifi Pro (the round one). But when 
I tried with the Unifi Pro AC (square one), it ignored the attributes. I 
reported the problem but didn't get any response:

I suspect it's a chipset difference. Try ssh'ing into your AP, and doing

grep driver /etc/aaa*.cfg

I think I saw "broadcom" for the Pro AC, but "atheros" for the Pro.

I also now have a Unifi AC Lite (also "atheros") and that works fine:
