It's not possible: information flows fomr dnsmasq to the dhcp-script,
but not the other way. In fact the address is allocated long before the
script is run.

The addresses allocated by dnsmasq are fairly "random" anyway. If you
can describe in more detail exactly what you are trying to achieve, we
can probably make suggestions.
