That is not true - type 2 LSA is created only for non-stub network, with
at least two routers. Stub networks are just part of type 1 LSA. So you
mean that exporting routes to OSPF would add some stub records to type 1
LSA? That could be done, but it is not implemented (and it is not
a trivial change).
