[Dnsmasq-discuss] Some MAC addresses recognised, others not, in dhcp lines

I'm running dnsmasq version 2.76 on a raspberry pi to provide DNS and
DHCP services on my LAN.
I have some dhcp-host lines in my configuration file to give names to
systems that don't give their names, e.g.:-
Most of these work but a couple don't work.... ..and I think I have
just realised why they don't work. Systems which don't request their
IP address from dnsmasq don't provide dnsmasq with their MAC address
and thus dnsmasq doesn't give them a name.
Presumably these static IPs must be put into /etc/hosts on the dnsmasq
system, is this the only way of handling this?
