I'll admit right now that I don't know nearly enough about the IETF process,
but it looks like there have been 2 separate attempts at this:
draft-lee-dnsop-resolver-wellknown-ipv6addr - ID, expired
draft-ohta-preconfigured-dns - ID, expired

Until one of those is revived (or a similar draft is written), and makes it
through IETF to reach RFC status, and there are assigned addresses from
IANA, there are no well known addresses for anyone hardcode.
