Let me rephrase the question in hope for an answer:

Is it at all feasible to identify the operating system of a client?

no, not really. We try to match by the list of supported SMB dialects in the SMB1 negprot, but that is really just guesswork.

Maybe some means of translation table would come in handy

Thanks for the idea, but that's not an option, as USB ethernet dongles from non-Apple vendors are used with Macs in the network I'm working with.

Could you use DHCP option 60 to resolve to a separated IP range for you Mac clients? (excerpt from a Samsung TV)
