IPv6 multicast listener discovery

The FreeBSD 8.2 sends sevaral MLDv2 listener reports during startup.
The system sends one listener report with its solicited multicast address which comes from the automatically generated link local address.
But I can see another MLD2 listener report with 2 records. One is the mentioned solicited multicast address.
The other one is e.g. ff02::2:2d75:f2b8.

I've no idead where it comes from. The interface has only on link local address.
It might be a bug in FreeBSD 8.2

Best regards, Rainer.
