Unlikely, but our IPv6 code selects a real adress (if any is assigned
to whatever interface) and uses that as route, so it just works.
I have this on my router:
pppoe0: flags=8851<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1456
inet 18.104.22.168 -> 22.214.171.124 netmask 0xff000000
inet6 fe80::a00:20ff:fe99:fc91%pppoe0 -> prefixlen 64 scopeid 0xa
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX full-duplex)
inet 192.168.150.10 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.150.255
inet6 fe80::a00:20ff:fe99:fc91%hme0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
inet6 2a01:170:1032:1::1 prefixlen 64
and it all just seems to work fine.
What I found strange is that I can't distinguish a v6 "enabled" pppoe
connection from a non-v6 one:
pppoe1: flags=8851<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1492
inet 126.96.36.199 -> 188.8.131.52 netmask 0xff000000
inet6 fe80::a00:20ff:fe99:fc91%pppoe1 -> prefixlen 64 scopeid 0xb
But this is just like normal ethernet - they get a link local v6 address and
you can't see if v6 works on the wire.
However, to help avoid confusion, I plan to add a command to pppoectl that
allows listing of active controll programs, so I could see "LCP IPCP IPv6CP"
on pppoe0 but only "LCP IPCP" on pppoe1.
