The data is correct — The top 5 players on that page do not have AAAA records published for their authoritative name servers (despot all being v6-capable for most or all of their content):


ryan at lion:~$ echo google.com facebook.com youtube.com yahoo.com wikipedia.org | xargs -n1 dig +short -t NS | xargs -n1 dig +short -t AAAA
ryan at lion:~$ 

(no results for the authoritative servers of all 5 domains)

ryan at lion:~$ echo google.com facebook.com youtube.com yahoo.com wikipedia.org | xargs -n1 dig +short -t NS | xargs -n1 dig +short -t A

ryan at lion:~$ 

(19 A record total results for the 5 domains in question)


The same query done together with host(1), excluding various MX responses, which would show v6 answers alongside the v4:
ryan at lion:~$ echo google.com facebook.com youtube.com yahoo.com wikipedia.org | xargs -n1 dig +short -t NS | xargs -n1 host | grep -v mail
