D-Bus does not store data, it's merely an old-style RPC.

dnsmasq does not send any D-Bus message when giving out leases, it merely
provides an API to add/remove them while it is running.

Without any lease file or lease script, dnsmasq has no way to have a memory of
the lease.

maybe it's just the client sending a DHCPREQUEST directly with the old lease,
and dnsmasq being to eager to give it out ?
