What does node-local mean in IPv6 in terms of multicast scope?

In terms of multicast scopes, learn what node-local means in this definition by our Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) expert, Silvia Hagen.

In IPV6, what does "node-local" mean?
I assume you are referring to the multicast scopes, right? In example, Scope 01 would be node-local, whereas 02 would be link-local. So node-local means that the scope is restricted to the node only; it will not leave the node and go out to the link.
