You're right, though this may change in the future.

You mean have DHCP-PD server that's running on a different machine?
DHCPv6 has the same capability as DHCPv4 to have more than one DHCP
server on a network. The client is supposed to pick whichever one works
best for it, so _in theory_ running another DHCPv6 server just for
DHCP-PD should work. I've certainly never tried it.
