If I understand correctly, I should not use private-address as they will
remove any occurence of IP addresses fom my local network; also, it
seems that private-domain only apply to forward zones as reverse zones
do not return IP address, isnt'it?

I tried both (independently) and it didn't work unfortunately.

Ok, indeed that works.  Is it the expected behaviour, and if yes what is
the rationale of this?  I think we should be able to divide further
RFC1918 reverse zones for convenience, unless there is a strong reason I
don't understand to not do that; I mean I have the impression that
unbound somewhat enforces the pre-CIDR behavior of these private
