I wonder if you are getting confused by the different meaning of stub network between EIGRP and OSPF. In EIGRP a stub router is a router with no dynamic neighbors behind it. But that is not what OSPF is describing when it labels a network as stub. In OSPF a stub network is a network that will not have any hosts on the network and has only routers. That is what a point to point link is, there are no hosts but only routers. That is why OSPF labels it as a stub network.
This is the definition for "Stub networks" in Jeff doyle.
"Stub networks have only a single attached router. Packets on a stub network always have either a source or a destination address belonging to that network. That is, all packets were either originated by a device on the network or are destined for a device on the network. "
My confusion is with the statement "Packets on a stub network always have either a source or a destination address belonging to that network"
As in the scenario I have mentioned the p2p link can definately behave like a Trasit n/w.
One more point I see is that if I have a n/w
Where the D----| is an ethernet link to a LAN segment to some hosts, OSPF states D---| as a Stub network. So "there are no hosts but only routers" is not entirely true.
