That was the case with the router that was provided with my FiOS service 
over the summer.  It looks like it wasn't even a firmware issue, or a 
Verizon-specific formware load, unless Verizon turned on the 'enable IPv6' 
bit at some point.  When I first got it, there was no IPv6 configuration 
on the router at all, nor was there an option to turn it on.  When I 
checked a few weeks later, there was an IPv6 configuration section, but 
the router had not been rebooted during that time, and it is still running 
the same firmware as before - when no v6 config section showed up.
