I tried Nmap6  on Windows XP SP3. As startup, Nmap performed address 
resolution with Neighbor solicitation sent using unspecified address 
and Source Link layer address option.
Neighbor Solicitation message must not be sent with source as 
unspecified address and having source link layer as specified in
RFC4861 section 7.1.1. Snapshot of the same indicated in bold.

Can you post your complete Nmap output? We do use IPv6 source addresses when sending ND probes; it may be a bug that 
your source address is being calculated as ::.

What is the output of this command?

nmap --route-dst ff02::1:ff19:37fe

What is the output of

nmap --iflist

Do the packets appear when you use the --packet-trace option? If not, then they are being sent by the operating system, 
not by Nmap itself.
