domain suffix is applied to non-domain joined computers through DHCP...

I have option 15 set in DHCP (Windows server 2008) to put domain.com on the end of the computers that are getting IP addresses. However, I was under the impression that if they were not computers that were joined to the domain it would list them is PCname., without the domain extension, but I can see ones showing up with a name.domain.com that are not joined. Is there any way to configure it so that only the ones joined to the domain show up as name.domain.com and then the other ones are just listed as Hostname.?
Should I remove that option 15 I have set in DHCP for this?

Any computer that gets it's IP information from DHCP will have all the settings applied.  There are ways around this, but the easiest is probably to just remove option 15.  Domain computers will know they're part of a domain anyway.
