I'm seeing an issue in releasing the IP address of the device assigned.
Please clarify what is the behavior of DHCP server from dnsmasq package.

*The setup.*

1. A GW device, running *dnsmasq(DHCP) *for assigning the dynamic IP
addresses to clients in the LAN(wired/wireless).

2. A client *C1* with *Y *as MAC address assigned as IP

3. Now, I'm trying to Reserve this IP( address to another
client *C2 *which has *Z *as MAC address using DHCP reservation option from
the GW UI

Soon after step-3, I expect DHCP server to send ARP/PING requests for
checking whether is assigned to any device in the network
currently. But, thats not happening.
