I believe that the only way, will be thru an ANE.

Should be a simple ANE with a single method, however you still need to build one.

Android stopped allowing access to the mac address in Android 6

To provide users with greater data protection, starting in this release, Android removes programmatic access to the device’s local hardware identifier for apps using the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth APIs. The WifiInfo.getMacAddress() and the BluetoothAdapter.getAddress() methods now return a constant value of 02:00:00:00:00:00.

https://developer.android.com/about/versions/marshmallow/android-6.0-changes#behavior-hardware-id

You should use one of the OS provided identifiers instead of the mac address.
