I'm not proud of this, but both forms are valid, and mean different things.

 From  man dnsmasq:

"The optional network-id is a alphanumeric label which marks this 
network so that dhcp options may be specified on a per-network basis.
When it is prefixed with 'net:' then its meaning changes from setting
a tag to matching it. Only one tag may be set, but more than one tag may 
be matched."
