I am not sure if I understood DHCP correctly. I have this configuration

  option routers;

And I think this means the DHCP server should not assign IP address to any hosts that do not have MAC address of

No, it doesn't mean that. You have configured dhcpd to have two ways of assigning the address One is through the dynamic mechanism and the other is through the fixed address.

You should set your fixed address to be outside of your dynamic pool range.
