The source on this is actually ::/128 so it's not a default route in the sense that it will forward arbitrary traffic through it. It is needed for IPv6 packets that originate on the host but where the application doesn't specify an address to bind to. To see that, try removing it and then ping6 something you don't have a specific route to...

>(see the 01?)?

2601:c:ce00:9d01 is 2601:000c:ce00:9d01
2601:c:ce00:9d1 is 2601:000c:ce00:09d1

So no? :)
