But that's the point.
The "Network" part is pre-determined, just as a IPv4 Class C was assigned to only one entity.
When you apply for an IPv6 address allocation, you are assigned a specific "Network part," which is then combined with the Host part to created a specific machine address. As you have read, there are different ways of creating that machine address, but the Network part is fixed.
