IPv6 Question

Hello folks -

Studying for the Network+ exam. I have a question about Stateless Autoconfiguration (EUI-64). Within my Network+ book, it states it looks at the 7th bit of the U/L to change it into a link-local address?

10 = Universal Unique
00 = Locally Unique

For example -

Original MAC Address
: 0060:D673:1987
Padded with FFEE: 0260:d6FF:FE73:1987

How does the 2 get in the beginning of the MAC after FFFE gets added? I can't understand the book's explanation.
