  To be honest... v4 is under major development.  We do have tests for all kinds of things.  But not everything works the same as in v3, and not everything is finished.  So it's "buyer beware".

  Look at the debug output.  You should be able to see when these attributes are added (or not).

  For example, I see:

(6.0)    eap.tls - Continuing EAP-TLS
(6.0)    eap.tls - Got final TLS record fragment (1383 bytes)
(6.0)    eap.tls - [eap-tls verify] = complete
(6.0)    eap.tls - Handshake state - Server SSLv3/TLS write server done (26)
(6.0)    eap.tls - <<< recv TLS 1.2, handshake[length 2381], unknown_handshake_type_0x000b
(6.0)    eap.tls - Adding certificate attributes to session-state
(6.0)    eap.tls -   &session-state.TLS-Client-Cert-Serial = "03"
(6.0)    eap.tls -   &session-state.TLS-Client-Cert-Expiration = "Feb  6 1970 11:23:13 UTC"

  In v4, this is *extensively* documented.

  It's not clear.  The full debug output should help.
