Thanks; I just tested commenting out line 5 of that file, and it successfully works around the issue, allowing me to set a link-local IPv6 address as my endpoint. The wireguard connection itself also works, and I can pass traffic.

Getting link-local addresses to work would probably be very low-priority, but I did run into an extremely niche case where I wanted to do that. It's not the type of situation that would happen in a production environment, but I was running VyOS on a computer tethered via ethernet to an Android-based phone, and I wanted to connect to a wireguard peer running on the phone. Modern version of Android randomize the IPv4 address of their tethered interface on each reboot, but their link-local IPv6 address remains the same, making it more convenient to use it.
