Link local addresses can still use service discovery on the local network to find things like an NTP server. Link local addresses basically depend on service discovery to even be useful.

Also, a DHCP server does not guarantee a binary option between public Internet connectivity or the use of a firewall/NAT. There's nothing in the world that says a DHCP server can't assign local addresses (fc00::/7) that don't route over the 'Net. You'd need a truly bad ISP for attackers to even be able to send you packets to those addresses, or receive packets from those addresses.
