I am not even sure this is a "bug"...

if you don't setup a HNA then OLSR might set/remove the route because other 
nodes have a HNA setting. This is necessary, without this the forwarding of 
HNAs would not work.

On linux you can prevent this by telling OLSRd to put his own routes into 
different routing tables and setup policy routes so that the local HNA 0/0 
route has priority over the OLSRd HNA 0/0.

I am not sure if this is possible in BSD.
