No, I'm afraid those bits are currently ignored. Now that you mentioned 
it, I belive I can read those bits (or at least some sum of them) from 
/proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth0/autoconf file. But I have no idea how to read 
such information in Windows systems. This issue was mentioned some time 
ago and it is already present in bugzilla (bug #49).
