I can confirm this.

There was a change in WinUAE 3.4.0, so after this it generates a new mac adress for the emulation, so I did a test with a recent WinUAE and an older (2.8.0) version. They both return zero's only.
Could be interesting to know if this is a WinUAE issue or if it does the same on a real amiga.

I could test it on my MorphOS setup later.

Getting MAC addresses is currently unsupported on OS3 because AFAICS it's very difficult to do this in a way that is compatible with AmiTCP/Miami/Genesis/Roadshow/WinUAE and I don't have access to test systems with those stacks so you'll currently always get 00:00:00:00:00:00 on OS3...
