It's not like that NAS keep resending unitl radiud responds , it's very
much in control  normally 3 retries are configured at Nas.

For your case you can log sql query via sql_log module and to reply or not
can be controlled via setting return codes

You can also Handle the Nas retransmissions by keeping optimal cleanup time
so that radius holds one request and consider RTs as duplicate and discard
