dhcp6 solicit

I was doing some packet scanning on one of my IPv6 enabled servers and I 
found traffic such as the following frequently (IPs slightly edited):

02:23:02.410360 IP6 fe80::ff78.546 > ff02::2.547: dhcp6 solicit

Not having done too much ipv6 packet scanning yet I am curious to know 
if this is a mis-configured dhcp6 server somewhere? Is this a rather 
common thing to see in IPv6 traffic?

The addresses are not mine, neither do I run a dhcpv6 daemon (no need 
for it).

Thanks,
Jeroen
