Well, there is no such thing as an out-of-the-box BGP configuration,  
so that's to be expected.

Although ISPs tend to let packets with RFC 1918 source addresses slip  
out from time to time, they're actually pretty good at rejecting RFC  
1918 routes: currently, route-views.oregon-ix.net doesn't have the, or networks in its BGP table (there  
are two entries for, though). So in IPv4 the magic is of  
sufficiently quality.
