No, the DHCP server has to be able to determine which subnet(s) the
client is located on. Apart from anything else, dnsmasq supports
multiple static addresses for a client, and choses the one which is
suitable for the clients current subnet.
What you're trying to do with a DHCP relay is completely standard: it
should be possble to make it work.
