Some silly DHCP servers send parameters even if you didn't ask for them. So it's possible to send the hostname FOO, not request the hostname paramter and get the hostname BAR returned.

We fixed this in dhcpv6.

Is that the RFC, the DHCPv6 part of dhclient only, or dhclient as a whole.
I'm guessing the latter which means dhclient-4.x
As of now, NetBSD only has dhclient-3.x in the base system so the scenario I described could still happen.
