I don't have a test for it, but from the code inspection it seems that when the client sends empty FQDN, expecting that the server will generate the FQDN for the client, the server will only generate it when there is also an address lease allocated for the client. This is because the hostname is generated from the client's address. If the server fails to allocate the lease the server will also silently fail to generate FQDN and leave the empty FQDN in its response.

As a result the server will try to create name change requests for empty FQDN. It will also send back empty FQDN to the client.

We should also make sure that the FQDN is processed correcly for DHCPv4.
