Not on Cisco or Juniper routers.

When I say LAN's I mean router, switch, server and service 
LAN's, e.g., DNS servers, mail servers, web servers, 
router/switch interfaces, e.t.c. For such cases, I manually 
configure device addresses because I don't want to leave it 
up to some random mechanism.

On user LAN's (like a corporate office network), I use SLAAC 
and DHCPv6, much like you'd use DHCPv4 for the same.
