I just installed NetworkManager 1.2 in fedora 23 in the hopes that I

wpa_supplicant only gained the necessary functionality that
NetworkManager looks for back in late October 2015.  It was committed
after wpa_supplicant 2.5 but it appears there hasn't been a release
since then.  But once that happens, or if you build supplicant version
from git, NM will begin to use that capability if you've enable it in
the NM configuration.


So there is no current release of wpa_supplicant that supports the 
randomization feature?

According to Lubomir Rintel and Michael Biebl the feature was released 
in 2.4.....


- Add support for using random local MAC address

-is- part of >= wpa_supplicant 2.4

- hostapd/wpa_supplicant 2.4
- Change version information for the 2.4 release

but Williams speaks of the necessary elements to do so in the context,

"D-BUS is a system for sending messages between applications. ..."

- dbus: Expose interface globals via D-Bus properties
