Thanks to all that have responded.  Yes indeed, this is what I was

It didn't actually cause any troubles, but I was telling people "IPv6
host part is built from the MAC address of that interface" and then one 
user then asked "ok, so I have *this* MAC and *that* IPv6 address, and I 
can't see any relationship"... - now I have an answer for him :-)
