Comment(by shep):

 The mfiwiex driver is not involved in selecting an IPv4 address.   In
 fact, there is zero use of the IPv4 address within a wireless driver.

 I think you want to be looking into increasing the verbosity of
 NetworkManager, the DHCP client, and the DHCP server involved.

 Using "ip addr show" both before and after the address change might show
 something.  "ip addr show" will not only show the (set of) IPv4
 address(es) changing, but will also show if the ethernet address has for
 some reason changed.  (I'm having trouble imagining why a DHCP server
 would give you a different IPv4 address unless you showed up with a
 different ethernet address.)
