That's quite lengthy. However, on my system I see that:

# sysctl net.ipv6.conf.all.router_solicitation_max_interval
net.ipv6.conf.all.router_solicitation_max_interval = 3600

If this is the same on the host in question, then that likely isn't
the problem.

Are the periods between stalls, and the time during stalls random, or
the same lengths most of the time?

How are interfaces on this host configured, in
interfaces/interfaces.d, network manager, some other way?
