Not currently.

Those three fields are not supported yet either. I've mentioned this
to many people who've inquired, but my goal is to make the RadLogs table
like the Calls table, in that RadiusNT will dynamically create the
INSERT based on the core set of fields and any additional ones that match
entries from the authentication request.

I really don't undestand your question, though. Radlogs contains FAILED
authentication requests. Therefore, there should not be any corresponing
Accounting records (or Acct-Session-ID entries). Maybe I am missing
something here?
