169.254.x.x is the link-local IPv4 space

"The Internet"(tm) seems to think that these get assigned if an
interface is configured for DHCP but unable to talk to a DHCP server or
similar situations. It might also indicate you have avahi or some other
zeroconf thing enabled in the domU.

I'm not a gentoo user but you say you used config_eth0="" in
your conf.d/net, while
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-747458-start-0.html gives an
example with more fields and more ()s involved. I don't know if those
differences are relevant.

You could try doing it by hand to confirm it is working with:
    ifconfig eth0 netmask up
and once that is working worry about how to translate that into a gentoo

tools/hotplug/Linux/vif-nat contains:
  echo $(echo $1 | awk -F. '{print $1"."$2"."$3"."$4 + 127}')

which AIUI is supposed to calculate the dom0 IP given the domU IP by
adding 127 to the final quad. 42+127 == 169 as you have seen. So I think
this is normal.
