Yep, that is indeed misleading.
We consider it should be "auto" in order to let
know that the DHCP process failed and that address is a Link-local
address. What do people think?
According the docs we report for IPv4 dhcp, manual and off. For IPv6 is
auto, manual, 6to4 and off. If I got that correct then is IPv6's auto
the LL for IPv4. So yes, that sounds the right thing to do.
