Quad ethernet card on AXi starts with identical MAC addresses on 5.2.1R

since I have my Sparc for a few days now and could take my hands on a 
4-port ethernet card I have seen that there is something not as I 
expected it to behave.

My 4-port card gets detected and I can use it, but it shows on all 
interfaces the same MAC address. Output from boot is appended for 
conviniance. I just got around that with manually assigning unique MACs 
to all interfaces.

I am just wondering if that behavior is as intended.
