Should two loco m2 (ap&sta) with wds enabled expose their wireless mac to router?

I am using two Loco M2 as a bridge between office and a warehouse. I forgot to enable WDS and had it running like that for couple days until I noticed two mac addresses per each M2 in the unifi. I enabled WDS now and suspect wireless macs will fall off the list, but out of curiosity wanted to know if disabled wds the reason why router saw wifi mac addresses. With WDS enabled router shouldn't be aware of those wifi macs right?

Yes, the router will still see the mac address of the radios.

 

WDS enabled on both radios allows traffic to flow across the bridge without being manipulated by either radio.

I am moving this out of the beta section.
