NetBSD seems to pref 2002::/16 6to4 addresses (which is a tunnel mechanism) 
over native IPv6 transport if both are given for a remote host. This is broken 
behavior now days, then native IPv6 is deployed on a much wider scale than 
before. (The 6to4 2002::/16 RFC is under discussion to become a historic 
document in the IETF)

Fetch a package from a server that has a public DNS name containing a 6to4 
address, a IPv6 native address and a IPv4 address. NetBSD will try to download 
the source file in the order just described.
