This got me curious. Looking at /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-
ipv6, you can control ipv6 from /etc/sysconfig/network.
# Uses following information from "/etc/sysconfig/network":

# IPV6_DEFAULTDEV=<device>: controls default route (optional)
# IPV6_DEFAULTGW=<address>: controls default route (optional)
