Not exactly, it set the address field to be the name you choose for the 
host dot (.) the domain that related to the picked host-group

IP addresses can and should be dynamic based on your DHCP server 
configuration, but DNS name should stay the same. Adding the host that 
way to engine uses satellite to configure its DNS entry and other 
network configurations. That's why we lock the address field and fill it 
with the future FQDN.

Yes, the DNS setup is related to it. We depend on it. Using IP address 
might brake the integration between engine and satellite when the DHCP 
service is configured with address ttl option and can give the host 
different IP address in next boot. So currently we don't support address 
modification with Discovered\Provisioned Hosts


If that answer is not clear feel free to ping me in irc (ybronhei
