That seems very unlikely.

If I connect from two different machines here, with 142.90/16 addresses, 
both connections are logged as, or etc. Which
are subnet addresses, not host addresses.

huh! wtf?  - if I enable /server-status, the correct address for the 
client asking for /server-status, is not just logged, but resolved, even 
though HostnameLookups is off. But other requests still get the 98.32
