welcome back to the Polycom Community.
The extended host name syntax is a UTF-8 [RFC3629] string so therefore we have always been using this type of string.
The "older" RFC 1035 does not allow the usage of underscore but again we hardly ever have a customer complain about this.
The FAQ contains:
Aug 10, 2016 Question:Can I change the Hostname of my Polycom phone?
Explanation:Please check => here <=
You can simply manually change this.
If this is a big issue for your organisation simply raise a feature request:

Thanks for your time.
I had read the FAQ on changing the hostname. That is where I began to wonder why Polycom was not RFC compliant. That particular FAQ supports that propsition that underscores are not acceptable in host names by reference to the older RFC 1035, but then goes on to give an example which uses them. That seems confusing at best.
Is there a way to include the MAC in the modfied hostname?
