  Removing the aliases, e.g.,

    # /sbin/ifconfig fxp0 inet6 -alias fe80::202:b3ff:ff14:432e
    # /sbin/ifconfig lo0 inet6 -alias fe80::1
    # /sbin/ifconfig lo0 inet6 -alias ::1

and restarting the daemon(s) gets you part of the way there (cleans
up sockstat a bit); but yeah, there are still listeners on the
wildcard addr.
