I will try and improve the logic so it's only the relevant interfaces.
The change was made to allow IP address sharing on many interfaces via
DHCP without actually removing the IP address from the non active
This might have been over-zealous on my part.

Currently not, no.
Hopefully I can change it so that no toggle for it is needed.

I don't know anything about 802.1q trunks.
How can I tell that it is one, and why shouldn't it have a local address?

No idea.
It's the address belonging to wm0 interface.
See my earlier query.

Even if dhcpcd is not used, if IPv6 is enabled in the kernel and
auto-link local is set for the interface (which it is by default and it
looks like you've not disabled it in ifconfig.wm0) then you would get
this address anyway.
