The above is the only reference to "local" that I find and I didn't
take it as meaning strictly link-local. They could just be global
scope addresses that are only used internally. But in case it was
wanted to use addresses that cannot be globally routed, there is the
Unique Local Address range which is intended to be like RFC1918 but
for IPv6:


So in that case OP should pick some random block within fc00::/7.

But if OP has been assigned some stable prefix by the tunnel broker
then I would think it is perfectly fine to use a subnet of that for
internal addressing, with appropriate firewalling.

Perhaps there is a desire to keep the same internal addresses even
if the tunnel broker supplier were to change.
