You shouldn't be seeing the MAC address in an IPv6 address (other than a link-local address, starts with fe80:). EUI-64 assignment method was deprecated a long time ago because of the obvious privacy issues.
The hostID part of the address (normally the lower 64 bits) should be random on anything even vaguely modern.
