You're right: dnsmasq will collect all the options marked a vendor 
encapsulated (with the vendor: string) and put them together inside a 
"vendor encpsulated options" DHCP option. the net result is the same set 
of bytes that you are giving "by steam" to dhcpd

I forgot to say that this stuff has changed over the life of dnsmasq: if 
you're using an old version, it might be different.
