Not all forms of SAN names are supported.  If you look in 
include/openssl/x509v3.h you see the following:
# define GEN_OTHERNAME   0
# define GEN_EMAIL       1
# define GEN_DNS         2
# define GEN_X400        3
# define GEN_DIRNAME     4
# define GEN_EDIPARTY    5
# define GEN_URI         6
# define GEN_IPADD       7
# define GEN_RID         8

crypto/x509v3/v3_alt.c you can find details and corner-case information.

A couple things. As we have discussed directly, I am not a coder; haven't coded since working with 'B' on Honeywells in the mid-80s. So looking at 'C' code is a bit of a struggle. That said,

Given these supported names, what goes into the config file to create a SAN without having to specify it on the command line?

And further it seems you are saying there is no support for HMN at all.
