FS#1737 - OpenWRT 18.06 - LuCI is not displaying cloned WAN (pppoe-wan) MAC

There is a small glitch I’ve noticed in the Network>Interfaces section under OpenWRT 18.06 - LuCI. I’m cloning my WAN MAC with:

uci set network.wan.macaddr=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
uci commit network
ifdown wan
ifup wan

and the GUI is displaying the WAN (pppoe-wan) interface details:
Protocol: PPPoE
Uptime: 0h 5m 43s
MAC: 00:00:00:00:00:00
The MAC is actually cloned successfully and I can verify that by checking the details of the eth1 interface (ssh to the router - ifconfig).

LuCI is an independent project and not part of OpenWrt base system. It is maintained at Do not get confused by the fact that it is in the OpenWrt repository.

Would you please open a bug report at to make sure that the appropriate people get aware of the issue.

Thanks! Sorry, I was not aware of that, thought that LuCI is part of the core OpenWRT project.
There is already a bug report related to my reported issue:
