I guess you have to use this in dhcpd.conf:

    option host-name "raymonde.local";

At least, in my dhclient-eth0.leases file I have option host-name with
the fully qualified host name...

I am getting host names from DNS with "get-lease-hostnames on;" in
dhcpd.conf, so I think it does what I expect (sending FQDNs) in that
