Entire MAC address spoofed
When starting 3.0~beta3 on a X200 with an internal Wi-Fi card from factory, I get the entire MAC address spoofed.
2.12~rc1 behaves as expected and only randomized the end of the MAC address.

FWIW I can't reproduce this with a (wired) network interface in libvirt/QEMU. I wonder how sajolida noticed this, and whether this has anything to do with NetworkManager randomizing the MAC address when scanning for Wi-Fi networks.
Not a blocker, but still: sajolida, with which command did you notice this, and at which point during the network configuration process? (before/after having connected to a Wi-Fi AP?)

Reproduced with a Broadcom BCM43225 Wi-Fi interface in some Acer laptop, before connecting to any Wi-Fi AP. The Journal says that the current (fully randomized) MAC address was set by NetworkManager for scanning, as expected. Once I've connected to a Wi-Fi AP, only the non-vendor bytes of the MAC address are randomized, as expected too. So I bet that sajolida checked while scanning and was thus confused. sajolida, please reopen if you can reproduce this outside of the Wi-Fi scanning phase.
