I'm implementing a parse function for dhcp ipv6 messages based on draft

In chapter 22.20 I noticed that the option length
of Reconfigure Message option is set to 1.

In the figure msg-type is drawn with 2 bytes length though.

I assume the length should be one byte , which is enough to
carry the data it's used for.
