Interaction between hosts allow and hosts deny

I am trying to master the hosts allow module parameters described by man
rsyncd.conf . Quoting from the man page:
> hosts allow
> This parameter allows you to specify a list of comma- and/or
> whitespace-separated patterns that are matched against a connecting client's
> hostname and IP address. If none of the patterns match, then the connection
> is rejected.
I understand from this that if I specify only IPv4 addresses, no IPv6 traffic is
accepted. Is this correct?
Quoting again from the man page:
> Note IPv6 link-local addresses can have a scope in the address specification:
Should I understand that the %link1 in these examples could be replaced by say
%wlan0 or %eth0 , and that I could write fe80::%wlan0/64 ?
