Not to my knowledge, no.  If you'd like to help out and contribute a
backend for udhcpc that would be great; it's not a ton of work but it
does require creating a new subclass for udhcpc, creating the helper to
push the information back to NM if the format is different, and a few
other things.  I can give some direction if that sounds workable to you.
