Do Hubs have MAC addresses?

I just have a simple question, do hubs have MAC addresses? As I remember, they don't and it's been awhile since I took my courses and I just want to be sure.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It depends on whether or not they are active or passive hubs. Active hubs will have a mac and some of them you can even put an IP and a host name as well. Passive hubs don't do anything but create a physical connection for cables and they don't have a mac address.
