Section 11.3 says:

   This cmsghdr will be passed to every socket that sets the
   IPV6_RECVPATHMTU socket option, even if the socket is non-connected.
   Note that this also means an application that sets the option may
   receive an IPV6_MTU ancillary data item for each ICMP too big error
   the node receives, including such ICMP errors caused by other
   applications on the node.

It should say:

   This cmsghdr will be passed to every socket that sets the
   IPV6_RECVPATHMTU socket option, even if the socket is non-connected.
   Note that this also means an application that sets the option may
   receive an IPV6_PATHMTU ancillary data item for each ICMP too big error
   the node receives, including such ICMP errors caused by other
   applications on the node.

Notes:

Change: IPV6_MTU should be IPV6_PATHMTU.
