Not to my knowledge.  Tho, having just read the RFC, looks pretty simple.

I guess what we'd want to do is set an IP-specific socket option that
causes ip_output() to include it in packets sent from that socket?  The
receiving end doesn't need to handle it...

...or do you mean "pay attention to it when NetBSD is in the role of
a router"?  :-)
