The mere act of bringing an interface up will generally assign it an
IPv6 link-local address.
dhcpcd doesn't change this behaviour.

Luckily this can be disabled in dhcpcd quite easy:
# Global default is IPv6 on all interfaces
interface wm0
    noipv6 # Disable IPv6 on wm0

Or reverse the logic
noipv6 # Disable IPv6 globally
interface wm0
    ipv6 # Enable IPv6 for wm0

Or just disallow the interface entirely:
denyinterfaces wm0

Or just allow some interfaces whilst denying others:
allowinterfaces wm0

And you can stop the kernel from doing this too if not using dhcpcd
ndp -i wm0 -- -auto_linklocal
