Or is it needed?

MAC addresses are of little use to anyone not on your network, just as non-routable IP addresses (ie. 192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x etc.) are not important and can generally be disclosed without any fear. My RPi3 has IP address 192.168.0.18 - nobody can do anything with that.

A MAC address is hard coded in hardware and unique and could be used to identify devices (and persons, think of phones). (Yes they the can be spoofed)
Completely different then local ip-addresses.
