@msuszko because "storage" is cheap and we want to store mac addresses in one convention - and the chosen standard is the way, which we want to present mac address to the user (so no need to processing this mac every time it's fetched from DB) and how we want it to be dumped to DHCP config (again, no need to processing with every request). Besides that, mac has fixed position for separator only when each octet is "full" (no expanding with 0, ex: "a:bb:cc:d:ee:ff" -> "0a:bb:cc:0d:ee:ff").
