So the setup is 15 clients <---> some wireless client <-------> Mikrotik

In this case, only "some wireless client" will be able to see all 15 different MACs. If it is necessary to see MACs on the Mikrotik, you must make a bridge from your "some wireless client"
With great knowledge comes great responsibility, because of ability to recognize id... incompetent people much faster.
