At my previous employer we sold networkable widgets that needed
(for reasons that aren't germane to this thread) to have a
static IP addresses assigned to them.  However, it didn't
matter if those static IP addresses came from DHCP servers or
from the devices configurations in flash ROM.

I don't know how many times I had the "dhcp clients can have
static-addresses" discussion with both customers and our
support people.
