What Happens to the IP Address of a DHCP Client When It is Disconnected from an MX Device

Scenario: A Meraki MX Security Appliance device running a DHCP server assigns an IP address to a client with a lease time of one day. If the node does not send a DHCP Release upon disconnect, that IP address will be unavailable until the lease time expires. The MX will hold the lease, even if the node is disconnected and is no longer using the IP address.
