We have RFCs that document our protocols.
Is RFC3315 unclear on this?

Relay simply relays the DHCP-reply from server to client (or to downstream relay),
after stripped the Relay Message option.
When no relay adds a Relay Agent Option, server may send Server Unicast Option.
Clients may ask for the Server Unicast Option.
