AFAIK the DHCP client has no authority to register dynamic dns regardless of
how the client machines are configured.  It's the DHCP server that decides to
update BIND and this can be turned on or off.  My guess is your DHCP server is
configured to update BIND when clients get new leases.  Hence the errors
reported by BIND when these attempts are made.  Read up on the man pages for
dhcpd.conf.  In particular review the ddns-update-style and ddns-updates options.
