Not really.
Note this is broadcast traffic, judging from the IP address. There might be something going on with the unicast/broadcast option.

Before hubbing out and firing up Wireshark, I got curious about
something while watching a log of DHCP transactions between a DHCP
server and client: Is it normal after the client has already obtained

packets to on the DHCP client if the DHCP client
is no longer asking for an address in a switched network?
