there is no "bit" in RIP to avoid loops. you would have to filter routes with distribution lists and also possibly adjust administrative distance.

In EIGRP there is a possibility to use SOO and BGP cost community to avoid loops. Have a look at "EIGRP MPLS VPN PE-CE Site of Origin (SoO)"

and at "BGP Cost Community Support for EIGRP MPLS VPN PE-CE with Backdoor Links"

for the technical details and configuration examples.

Hope this helps!
