It¹s not needed.

"address-family vpnv4" section is used to define which routers participate
in the VPNv4.  The underlying MPLS network will forward labels between the
VPNv4 end-point CE's. Next-hop-self isn¹t required. All that¹s required is
MPLS and IGP reachability between the CE¹s participating in the vpnv4
