Actually, it does.

What your 'ncp show line una-0 char' report is showing you is the
hardware ethernet address before DECnet changes it. Try looking
at an Ethernet monitor. If you are running TCP/IP on that host
they try looking in the ARP cache of another host or router on that
network for the Ethernet address that is actually being used.
