One of the device acts not as transparent bridge between MikroTik HotSpot and end client.
Make sure all device are configured as bridge, then you will get MAC-address of client.

The SXT needs to do WDS.
Make sure the bullet has wds enabled also.
WDS is what allows client ethernet device MAC addresses to go through 802.11 land, where normally, only station radio MAC addresses should be.
When given a spoon,
you should not cling to your fork.
The soup will get cold.

Wireless mode -> station WDS (or maybe try WDS slave)

I think the WDS tab is for the AP side, but you can always set that to dynamic and default bridge = the bridge you have configured already.

I had such a bridge that was pure Mikrotik set up at my house. When I get home I'll boot up the client and see what settings I used on that end because now I'm curious myself what I did.
