In the RadConfigs (user specific attributes) or RadATConfigs (account typpe
default attributes) table you can specify the attribute and make sure
the RadCheck column for that attribute is set to 1.

I assume in the above you mean RadiusNT, not Radius? You would handle
them just like above. RadiusNT 2.5 supports check attributes in ODBC
mode. The RadCheck column tells RadiusNT whether the attribute is a
check attribute (1) or a reply attribute (0).
