You just have shown that you don't understand what a wireless MANET (with 
multihop links, without most people would not consider it a MANET) is.

if each of the MRs use a wireless interface, the linklocals WILL BE VISIBLE 
outside their direct link. There is no way to prevent this. Because multiple 
links share interfaces in a non-transitive manner (see 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transitive_relation).
