End.X is defined as an adjacency-sid and is used to select a specific link to a
neighbor for both global and link-local addresses. The intention was
to drop the
packet even for global addresses if the route via the specific
interface is not found.
Alternatively(believe semantically correct for End.X definition) I
could do a neighbor lookup
for nexthop address over specific interface and send the packet out.

> Also doesn't SEG6_LOCAL_ACTION_END_DX6 need a similar treatment?

Yes. I will update the patch for End.DX6 based on the patch finalized for End.X.
