I've never had any problems like this. If the machine gets an IP
by DHCP, the server registers the hostname in DNS, independent of
the client machine running NM or not. If the hostname is specified
in DHCP_HOSTNAME.

Without access to the server's logfiles it would be difficult
to find out what your problem is...

Unless you can sniff the DHCP packets, or make a local setup
with your own DHCP server, not connected to the rest of the
network.
