The reason for that is probably that loopback does not have a link-local
address and BIRD skips that interfaces. BTW, the fact that it works in
IPv4 is unexpected, it was supposed that loopback and its addresses
would be completely ignored by OSPF. I thought that (at least in Linux)
it is a common trick to use dummy interface for such purposes (which
looks in many ways like a common interface, unlike the loopback
interface) instead of loobpack but i don't know a good rationale for

If you add that prefix using 'stubnet' then it is completely unrelated
to any interface and will be announced always.
