different link-local addresses, same MAC address. nothing wrong about that
try doing "ip a add fe80::1234/64 dev eth0" in your laptop or wherever;
voila! you have an extra, manually-set link-local address, that resolves
to the same MAC address (when asked by icmpv6)
the "uniqueness" of the link-local address you mention, means there
should not be two different computers/devices with the same ipv6 address
on the same collision domain.
It does not mean that a host must have only 1 link-local address.
