There is, but not without recompilation. Relevant excerpt from

- optional query to external RADIUS Authentication server
  (User-Name and User-Password are set to station MAC address;
  default format (RADIUS_ADDR_FORMAT in hostapd/radius.h has no
  delimiters and uses lower case hex characters, e.g.,
  00123456789a (= 00:12:34:56:78:9a); this shares the same
  RADIUS server configuration with IEEE 802.1X
