Where is fe80::1 coming from? Normally the link local address for the
router is used. As the link local address is based on the MAC
address, I doubt you'd see one ending in ::1.
Also, I haven't heard of using a global unicast address for a router.
As I mentioned, it's normally the link local address that's used.

fe80::1 is the router, it's quite a common address to use. See for
instance:
