# Backport of #10483

### Contribution description
If the interface's link-layer doesn't use link-layer addresses it obviously doesn't make sense to auto-configure an IPv6 address from it. Moreover, I think the address `fe80::` is actual illegal, but I couldn't find any references for it.

### Testing procedure
Try running an application with `slipdev`. The interfaces should not have an auto-configured IPv6 address with this PR. Without this PR an address `fe80::` (and the respective solicited nodes multicast address) show up.

### Issues/PRs references
Unrelated but found when debugging #10480.
