It is mentioned in this message:

The set lifetime in the message is extremely short, 5 minutes.
The default which is set in openSUSE is 1 day; I found that recently. I don't
know what happens around the time the address is changed. Is it kept around for
a while? But still the default is now, very recently changed, to have privacy
enabled, which may cause problems. I would suggest to have the privacy set on
laptops and not on desktops and servers. Maybe that parameter use_tempaddr
should be set to 1 on desktops and 2 on laptops.

Burden the admin is quite relative, if he/she does not understand it, the
default should be sufficient. With some explanation the admin should be able to
make a proper choice. I found configuring the mail server with YaST very
complicated, compared to configuring the network even with this complication is
still, IMHO, easy.
