Thanks Rick, am I correct in understanding that you are saying that
even though I have IPv6 set to link-local, that IPv6 is still being
attempted across the internet gateway, and in my case because my ISP
doesn't support IPv6, I am assuming those packets would be rejected
and hence the system would fall back to IPv4, or is it the case that
IPv6 is tried for every transmission, which would then make internet
access horribly inefficient?
No. The link-local addresses are not route-able. They cannot traverse
routers. Any DNS response with a IPv6 address will not be utilized.
So, you wouldn't get any IPv6 traffic attempting to go out the WAN path.
