I'm well aware of that

Software revision K.13.23

but at the moment they can only be IPv6 host (for management), not IPv6
router. See page 2-6 in the IPv6 configuration guide

| Supported IPv6 Operation in Release K.13.01
| Software release K.13.01 provides IPv6 protocol and addressing to
| support host-mode (endpoint) IPv6 operation, including basic layer-2
| functionality.  IPv6 routing features are not available in this release.
| However, using a dual- stack (IPv4/IPv6-capable) router, IPv6 traffic
| can be routed between VLANs and sent across an IPv4 network to another
| IPv6 device.  (For general information on sending IPv6 traffic across an
| IPv4 network, refer to “Connecting to Devices Supporting IPv6 Over IPv4
| Tunneling” on page 2-5.) The IPv6 features available in release K.13.01
| belong to these general categories:
| * switch configuration and management
| * security
| * IPv6 multicast traffic
| * diagnostic and troubleshooting

There is nothing in the release notes to suggest there have been
improvements in that area between K.13.01 and the current K.13.25
