I wonder what created this? I can't imagine why a system would be configured 
for fixed IP and yet have an ostensible DHCP configuration file at all, much 
less specifying static configuration parameters. Does that installation also 
have /etc/sysconfig/interfaces, and if so, is it last written subsequent to 
/etc/dhcpd.conf? Or before?

For the first time since Hermine, I booted host g5eas, which has both 16.04 
and Jessie. Both are configured with static IP. Both have 
/etc/sysconfig/interfaces. Neither have /etc/dhcpd.conf.
