This is a WOODWORKING forum, and woodworking routers, not network-based routers.
but, to answer your question - I worked as a Network Admin for 15 years, in a Windows 2008 AD domain as well Our DHCP was always handled through AD in conjunction with our DHCP servers THIS was and I believe still is the "industry standard" At no time did we have routers issue addresses.
I would certainly not speak to that IT consultant again if that is his opinion.
Some folks call me Vince - other folks call me...........
