As I understand it the v6 specifications define the notion of router vs host as a serious distinction, and ip6mode sets a number of defaults. ip6mode=router forces v6 forwarding on. autohost sets up the machine to take router advertisements, and there is a complaint if one has rtsold w/o autohost. Is there something that you want to do that is difficult to do now? I have been running a number of v6 routers and hosts and not been having problems. The only thing I can think of is trying to set up a router where one interface uses stateless autoconfiguration. This is a bizarre setup that the specs as I remember say one shouldn't do. I think it's good that someone can just set ip6mode=autohost in rc.conf and then have functioning v6, without having to muck with sysctls.
