Yes, there was rfc1918 in IPv6 right from the beginning:

Site local addresses "0xF80" dont leave a site. They can be routed within
a site but they never get outside. Just like rfc1918 addresses do.

Link local addresses that cannot even leave a link. Even more restrictive
than rfc1918. Just like old netbios used to be before it was ported to
tcp/ip, ipx and decnet.
