As our esteemed colleagues have pointed out, this looks like a typo:
From the evidence of the the logs you sent, none of the dhcp-options
need to be "dhcp-option-force", since the client is requesting them all.
Assuming fixing the typo gets you the "apple-boot" tag, try changing this to
And let dnsmasq do the vendor encapsulation. You should end up with the
same data sent, but it's clearer what's happening.
As an experiment, omit this. the result will be that dnsmasq echoes back
the vendor-class which the client sent, "AAPLBSDPC/i386/MacBook5,1" That
may be OK for Apple, it may not be, but worth a try.

It'll make no difference. The quotes will be stripped, if they're there
but they are not needed as the string doesn't include any
meta-characters. Safer to have the quotes.

No, dhcp-vendorclass will match as long as the match string is a
substring of the actual vendor-class string.
