Could you try the following in obp:
cd /pci@1f,0/ebus@c/eeprom@1,0
fff4bfd0 30 dump
and tell me the numbers in fff4bfd8 and fff4bfd9, I would like to know
if it's 01 80 or 01 83

That must be the "(real) machine type" (the second byte only, which is the first byte of a hostid). Without looking at it, I can say from my banner message that I have "(01) 80" currently in there, but I don't know the original value. I hadn't recorded that information before my NVRAM battery was depleted and I couldn't find a banner message from a Blade 100 online, so assumed "80" is correct.

[1] on page 17 shows it to be "83" for a Blade 150 (which seems to be correct, see below). On the other hand [2] on page 67 shows it to be "61" for a Blade 100 - which must be plain wrong as [3] lists it as starting with "8". Maybe it was "80" for Blade 100s that use the 08:00:20 block and "83" for Blade 100s that use the 00:03:ba block, which would make "80" actually wrong for my machine and used MAC address block.

But as my machine doesn't show any issues with IP address auto-configuration from the installer despite the assumed wrong "(real) machine type" in the hostid, it might be unrelated to your problem.
