With this setting, eth0 does not get a routeable IPv6 address.

eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
         inet  netmask  broadcast
         inet6 fe80::16da:e9ff:fef9:aa5c  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
         ether 14:da:e9:f9:aa:5c  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
         RX packets 943  bytes 119440 (116.6 KiB)

My router is set to its defaults for IPv6:

Dynamic IP (with options Dynamic, PPPoE, 6to4, Bridge)
Get IPv6: Auto (with options Stateful, Stateless, Non-Address, Auto)
Prefix Delegation: On
DNS Address: Auto
Assigned Type: DHCPv6 (with options ND Proxy, SLAAC+Stateless DHCP,
