Radvd announces the prefix to the local LAN, not back to the ISP. It's
routing protocols that announce local networks to the rest of the
Internet. However, I have absolutely no idea why it should be necessary
when something like dhcpv6-pd is used, as the ISP should know what it
handed out. If this were a business network, where a company arranges
for it's own prefix, they would configure the router with their prefix.
The local LAN would get the prefix via radvd and a routing protocol
would make that prefix known to the rest of the world. IPv4 has worked
this way for many years and it doesn't change with IPv6.
