Fixed address inside dynamic range

Not that this is exactly on-topic for this thread, but I would like to make sure I am correctly understanding...
It seems that in DHCPv6 that fixed-address6 DOES remove the IP from the pool. man dhcpd.conf:
" Any IPv6 addresses given to hosts with fixed-address6 are excluded from the range6, as are IPv6 addresses on the server itself. "
That seems pretty clear, but given that this is NOT the case in DHCPv4, I just wanted to clarify.
