It seems the IPv6: tag is sendmail specific, not Linux. I went through some documentation of some IPv6 related services, i.e. ssh, sendmail and BIND. Although I first thought that the IPv6: tag also appeared in the other services, I was wrong. It's only mentioned in sendmail. The only place where I've also found them is in milters, but those are obviously sendmail related.

Rick's solution is therefore the correct one. ;-)
