"Stateless DHCP"

Tell me ...

The DHCP servers I use such as 'dnsmasq' integrate with DNS.
(yes the big versions can do it too!)

Does SLAAC do that?

You need to elaborate on what you mean by "integrate with DNS".

I assume it means that you get, automatically, a DNS server that knows
the name and address of all addresses the DHCP equivalent hands out. But
if there is no server with SLAAC, the answer is "no".
