I believe that that would depend on whether your configuration
of a static IPv6 address on your box also disabled accepting RA.
On LInux, I believe it is something like net.ipv6.conf.<if>.autoconf=0
and net.ipv6.conf.<if>.accept_ra=0 (could easily be typos there,
doing it from memory). As with much else, your devops
scripts/processes may need to change for IPv6 vs IPv4
(which is why, especially for enterprises, it is not as easy as
just turning it on).
