Can't see how - one example of a client is /etc/dhcp/dhclient-eth0.conf:
send vendor-class-identifier "anaconda-Linux 2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64 x86_64";

and what's in /etc/dhcp/dhclient.d is
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 3221 Nov 11  2010 nis.sh
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 1944 May 20  2009 ntp.sh

What kind of configuration were you thinking of that could be wrong?
