Freeradius 3.2.0 with dynamic clients on LDAP

I work at a company with more than 300 APs and this number only increases.
To permit each AP to connect to Freeradius, I've configured a specified
VLAN with DHCPv4 and I've delivered to APs. The clients.conf has looked
like this:

client dhcp-aps {
ipaddr         =
secret         = testing123
shortname  = dhcp-aps
nastype       = other

But I would like to store the clients configuration on a LDAP base using
radiusClient scheme where the radiusClientIdentifier is the AP's MAC
address. Then I intend to configure dynamic clients to allow the same
created network to use Freeradius, but it will use Called-Station-ID to
auth the AP on LDAP.

I've googled it and found it using
Freeradius 2.1.12. Not 3.x though. Is it possible?
