Is there any way to configure the options that Network Manager sends to dhclient?

Chris Green
I'm running xubuntu 17.10 on my laptop (soon to be 18.04) and use the
default Network Manager to handle network connections.

I have a need to change the dhclient settings which are set by Network
Manager which calls dhclient:-

    chris$ ps -ef | grep dhclient
    root      7586  1585  0 09:00 ?        00:00:00 /sbin/dhclient -d -q -sf /usr/lib/NetworkManager/nm-dhcp-helper -pf /run/dhclient-wlp4s0.pid -lf /var/lib/NetworkManager/dhclient-aa408c06-abb7-467e-a228-f8b35a4d9222-wlp4s0.lease -cf /var/lib/NetworkManager/dhclient-wlp4s0.conf wlp4s0

In particular I would like to be able to specify the lease file.

It's obviously not set in /etc/dhcp/dhclient so is it built in to the
Network Manager executable (I hope not), or what?
