Description

Upon receiving a Router Advertisement that indicates that the client should use SLAAC, the address that would be used by the client should be added to the allowed IPs list, determined from the prefix in the Router Advertisement and the modified EUI-64 method for converting 48-bit MAC addresses into the 64-bit host identifier.

It probably doesn't make sense to worry about privacy extensions too much, since they don't apply as much to people using zones. (Privacy extensions tend to be for people who are concerned about migrating between prefixes and being tracked across them.)
