FreeBSD's ping Integrates IPv6

Hi all.

I just noticed (although it appears to have come in version 13.0) that 
FreeBSD's "ping" app now defaults to IPv6, i.e., no need for ping6:

Does anyone know whether other *nix systems are doing this now?

My Mac (Catalina) still requires ping6, and I don't have any recent 
Linux systems handy.
