If devices has ptp addresses (not a regular prefix), they are not
added as stub networks.

You can explicitly add them using 'stubnet IP;' in ospf area for each
one, but it might be tedious.

Another way is to anounce them as 'remote pool' together as a prefix
(if they are).

That is a good idea, another way is to use 'stubnet 192.168.134/24;'
in ospf area.
