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

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
Could you use DHCP option 60 to resolve to a separated IP range for you
Mac clients? (excerpt from a Samsung TV)
Frame 54169: 347 bytes on wire (2776 bits), 347 bytes captured (2776
bits) on interface 0
User Datagram Protocol, Src Port: 68, Dst Port: 67
Bootstrap Protocol (Discover)
Option: (60) Vendor class identifier
Vendor class identifier: 1.18.1-VD Linux VDLinux.1.2.1.x
Again, thanks for the idea. The DHCP service is managed outside of my
area of responsibility, I can't change or access anything.
I got a suggestion to use nmap with the smb-os-discovery plugin. I'll
give it a try when I have time and report back with my findings.
