A quick look at the documentation 
(https://kea.readthedocs.io/en/kea-2.2.0/arm/ddns.html) makes it look 
like kea already has the functionality built in for this. It just needs 
to be configured. So - different scripts, but the capability appears to 
be there.

Granted - that was just based on a quick look...
