More modern ntpd with the  Command Line Option -I,
 and / or the MiscOpt nic / interface configuration directive,
  could probably get the MAC address of the interface it using,
  (or some other uniqueish id) hash it, ...

   ntpd\ntp_io.c    link interface into list of known interfaces
    ep_univ_iid;   /* iface ID from MAC address */
    scan_univ_iid; /* see RFC 4291 */
    ep_privacy;	   /* random local iface ID */
    scan_privacy;  /* see RFC 4941 */

 I don't know where you'd stick the data,
  perhaps in an extension field.

  Similar to the ipv4 ref clock id lack of resolution issue,
   when IPv6 is the source?
