End device mac address changed to radios mac addr

HI, new guy here so I hope I am asking in the right place!

Wifi Router is a Linksys AE6350 running bridge mode to my main network.

|Firmware Version|OpenWrt 21.02.3 r16554-1d4dea6d4f / LuCI openwrt-21.02 branch git-22.245.77575-63bfee6|

|Kernel Version|5.4.188|

The Issue: (I hope I can describe this!! lol)

My end device is a security cam with a mac address of 9C:
My Wifi bridge radio(?) is changing the mac address of the camera 9C: in the IP packet? to the mac address of the Radio in the linksys mac of 60:....

how do I stop the wifi bridge radio from rewriting packet to have the wifiradio mac adress associated with the camera?

maybe this will help describe the problem better.

Camera is ip x.x.x.233 Mac 9C:xxxxxx
Linksys wifi bridge radio interface is IP x.x.x.151 mac 60:xxxxxx

lan scanner shows camera as IP x.x.x.233 with mac 60:xxxxxx

Why is this an issue? the security cam software implemented a scanner to match the IP and mac address,, to help with dhcp problems.. well I am static ip.. so the security cam software changes te ip to match the mac address,,, so I lose my feed. lol it switches the ip to the x.x.x.151 of the router. oops! I've sent a email to the security mfg as well. but OpenWRT is the issue. Any advice/Fix?

Thanks in advance.

That is how relayd works. Make sure you're set up with a real bridge not a relay.
