"When the TCP/IP protocol initializes and DHCPv6 has been enabled on any of the client machine's interfaces, the DHCPv6 client sends a DHCPv6 Solicit message to the All_DHCP_Relay_Agents_and_Servers multicast address specified in [RFC3315] to discover the available DHCPv6 servers. The DHCPv6 client includes a Vendor Class Option that contains information about the host, such as the operating system version."
If the solicit was being sent out to a bunch of addresses in order to find a server, then I guess that could explain why I got one. But I would imagine it would be sending IPv6 addresses, not IPv4, so I still don't really see how it would be sent to me.
